Oil Paintings by William Brown Featured In Reid Chapel

As part of our recommitment to the Purple Ribbon Ministry, First & Franklin is currently featuring oil paintings by Baltimore artist William Brown in Reid Chapel. These portraits were originally installed in the sanctuary on March 24, 2019, for a concert sung by the First & Franklin Sanctuary Choir in response to the ongoing violence in Baltimore City. Each painting features a victim whose life was ended by gunfire, and serves as a somber reminder of the terrible toll of gun violence in our city. We encourage all to take stock of this haunting display while it is still featured in Reid Chapel.
