Logsdon Chapel - HSU

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 8 October 2017 in Art & Design.

One of the distinctive features of the Logsdon Chapel on the campus of Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, is the stained-glass window. The window was designed and constructed by Byrd Glass Company of Lubbock, Texas after consultation with Logsdon’s first dean, Dr. H.K. Neely. Though designed as a single element, the window was constructed in 60 individual panels on metal framework. During the day, the sunlight creates a kaleidoscope of light on the 30-by-41 foot wall for those within the building; at night, the Logsdon window, with a cross, Bible, and a dove, is lit from the inside and serves as a wonderful piece of Christian art for the Abilene community to enjoy. The building, and specifically the window, has been featured in numerous local and national publications, and is regularly a highlight for campus visitors and tours.
