Religion on Acid: Former Church Gets a Bold Makeover
by Yasha Wallin
Christianity has been reinvented, reinterpreted and reworked countless times throughout the ages. Its only natural then, that its house of worship would also go through a metamorphosis over time. Enter HENSE, a multidisciplinary Atlanta-based artist who has transformed a former church in Washington D.C. into a bright, bold landmark that breathes new life into this building once used for prayer.
The building was originally a Friendship Baptist Church, build around 1886. In its heyday it had a cobblestone path that led directly to the Capitol, but today signs of that street are all but covered up. While honoring the church's history, HENSE wants visitors to see if for what it is today.
