When out of town guests visit, it’s an opportunity to be a tourist where you live and appreciate the sights the city has to offer. We parked and went into Heinz Chapel and I’ve been in many times. Each time you enter you think, hmmm I could be in France, the architecture and feeling of the sanctuary is remarkable. Some of the stained glass windows are seven stories high. I learned that they were all designed by a single artist
“The chapel’s 23 windows were designed by Charles Connick and created at his Boston studio. The windows total approximately 4,000 square feet (370 m2) and contain nearly 250,000 pieces of glass. There are 391 identifiable people in the windows, a large supporting cast of anonymous individuals, and an extensive variety of flora and fauna.”
Here are a few examples of some of the windows
Isaac Newton, John Keats, Emily Dickinson William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln and Beethoven to name a few.
