Cosmic Christ Mosaic Celebration
June 4 @ 10:30 AM - 1:30 PMFree
Join First Baptist Church Huntsville for a FREE event celebrating the completion of the restoration of the Cosmic Christ mosaic. Held in front of the mosaic, the mini-festival on Saturday will feature local artists, free lunch, face painting, inflatables, and tours of the historic sanctuary.
The mosaic dedication will occur during the Sunday morning worship service on June 5 at 10:30 a.m. Credential media will be provided a dedicated area for cameras.
Church leaders will be available for interviews at both events.
The mosaic, colloquially known as Eggbeater Jesus, is nearly 50 feet high and 154 feet long. Dedicated in 1974, the mosaic depicts Jesus Christ surrounded by the cosmos. The mosaic was designed and fabricated by stained glass artist Gordon William Smith and was originally composed of more than 1.4 million pieces. The restored mosaic was constructed by Italian artisans with more than 4.3 million blown glass tiles and nearly 1,000 colors.
