St. Thomas More Chapel artist wins awards
St. Paul sacred artist Alexander Tylevich, who created the bronze-relief doors, stained glass and the crucifix in the St. Thomas More Chapel at the School of Law, has won two design honor awards for his work on the chapel in a competition co-sponsored by Faith & Form Magazine: The Interfaith Journal on Religion, Art and Architecture, and the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture (IFRAA), a “knowledge community” of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Tylevich received awards in two categories: religious arts-visual arts (specifically for the bronze doors) and liturgical/interior design (for the chapel itself). Winning entries will be published in the winter issue of Faith & Form, and an exhibition of award-winning projects will be displayed at the 2007 AIA national convention next May in San Antonio, Texas. Faith & Form and IFRAA will present the awards at the 2006 IFRAA conference next month in La Jolla, Calif.
