Description

Our Lady of Grace Church was built by Italian immigrants living in this Greensburg hilltop neighborhood in the early 1900s. A century later the former parishioners might be surprised to find their church has been replaced by an art studio. Artist Brian McCall carefully restored the church, transforming it into his home and the Barking Dog Studio while maintaining the building’s historic elements.

Passersby can get a sense of McCall’s style from the changing sculptures he displays in the square in front of the building. He has added artwork to the façade of the church as well. Look for his distinctive pieces elsewhere in Greensburg at places such as The Key Note Café and Tommy’s Bookshelf.
