"God is Love" for Union Gospel Mission

Since 1902, Union Gospel Mission (UGM) has offered help for the homeless, poor and addicted in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area through meals, shelter, recovery, education and job training programs.

"God is love" has been a guiding verse for UGM over the years. I was asked to do a modern take on it that also referenced their past. I was provided with some historic photos and paired those with a modern custom type treatment of "God is love."

The final mural was printed at 8x8' and placed in their chapel—a room not only used for chapel service 365 days a year but is also an emergency shelter and serves as a bedroom for 52 guys every night of the year.

Big thanks to David Morrow at UGM for reaching out to me for this project.
