“Stabilization of the plaster may be the most pressing component of a restoration but it’s often the introduction or reinstatement of the artwork that galvanizes a community.”
Emily Sottile, Director of the Sacred Space Studio

This issue of Common Bond  celebrates the diverse range of styles found in New York’s religious architecture. Articles highlight adaptive reuse of former movie palaces to churches; case studies on balancing beauty, liturgy, public programming, and historic architecture; and scenes from NYLC’s May 2019 Sacred Sites Open House. EverGreene is proud to be a continued annual sponsor.
