About the Event
Experience an immersive 360° Tour of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, one of few Baltimore City Landmark interiors.
The spectacular interior is decorated by Rene de Quelen who was the head artist of Tiffany Company. The interior takes on a spectacular Byzantine influence in its use of color and mosaics. It includes Tiffany windows and Rubio marble inlaid with mother of pearl for the altar, pulpit, and lectern. The entrance is on 20th Street, just west of St. Paul.
The St. Mark’s congregation hired architect Joseph Evans Sperry to design a church in a Romanesque Revival style. The church would have been familiar to the congregation, most of whom hailed from Central and Western Europe. True to its Romanesque roots, the church has heavy stones, round arched doors and windows, and short columns, resembling St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Italy.
Drag the screen to spin the camera around, or fully immerse yourself using a VR headset.
The video was produced, narrated, and edited by Matthew Brennan, a PhD student focusing on (immersive) technologies applied to art, architecture, archaeology, and cultural heritage.
