The Heinz Chapel Project

Completed in 1938 on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, the Heinz Memorial Chapel was dedicated to the memory of Henry John Heinz (the H J Heinz of pickle fame) and his mother, Anna Margaretta Heinz. Built in the neo-Gothic style, it has the distinction of honoring secular, as well as religious, figures in its decoration.

I undertook the Heinz Chapel Project in the spirit of Ansel Adams' Projects, such as the Mural Project and National Park Project. In so doing, it was my intention to honor a photographer for whom I have the utmost respect. I pray that I have been successful.
