Nave of Assumption Basilica, Baltimore, Maryland.

John Carroll, the country’s first bishop, later Archbishop of Baltimore, and cousin of Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and Benjamin Henry Latrobe, father of American architecture, and Thomas Jefferson’s Architect of the Capitol guided the design and architecture of the historic Baltimore Basilica, built from 1806-1821.

In 2001, under the leadership of Cardinal William H. Keeler, 14th Archbishop of Baltimore, the Basilica of the Assumption Historic Trust, Inc. launched a campaign to restore the neglected Basilica to Latrobe’s original vision. The restoration included providing public access to the archbishops' crypt; the construction of a chapel in the undercroft; incorporation of the Basilica Museum; handicap accessibility to the entire Basilica; a complete overhaul of the Basilica’s infrastructure; and much, much more.

    What is texture?
    Texture goes beyond mere pattern or form into something more complex and organic that you could touch, feel and maybe even identify with your eyes closed if your hand were big or small enough. These are visual representations of a non-visual sense: touch.
