Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church; Mark Dukes, artist

The Dancing Saints

Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, San Francisco. 2005, 12p. plus long fold-out section with full-color reproductions and key to figures represented, very good in wraps, small donation sticker on front cover. Biography of the artist with photoportrait and details of the murals, which are perhaps the only church decorations in the world to depict Sojourner Truth, Mary Magdalene, John Coltrane, Queen Elizabeth I, William Blake, Su Shi, Malcolm X and Julia Morgan dancing arm-in-arm. Explains how the church's understanding of holiness led to decisions about which historical figures to represent. Dukes has very successfully adapted the Byzantine icon; mural "encircles the rotunda walls" and occupies 2,300 square feet.
