John Nava’s Tapestry design’s for the L.A. cathedral was a wake up call for me as to what a 2-D artist could bring to a large scale architectural project. The cash cow for such projects usually going to 3-D art or overpriced Blue chip  2-d stock that was more a decoration as part of an investment portfolio than a serious part of the architectural design process.

Here’s the story on the tapestries.

The whole cathedral is a unique and beautiful monument but that’s another story.
