The Living Chapel, an intercontinental project that featured elemental collaboration by Penn College welding faculty and students, is spotlighted in the July/August issue of PennStater magazine. Although an official publication of the Penn State Alumni Association, with content traditionally accessible only to members, “This Sacred Space” – written by managing editor Robyn Passante – has been made available to all. Passante’s extensive article chronicles the once-secretive and forever-surreal creation of the chapel, as proliferation of COVID-19 altered plans and perspectives among the many hands involved in the ecological installation.
