1. How Great Thou Art Marker
Inscription. My name is Lorning Cornish and for seven years I operated a glorious gallery in this building called

How Great Thou Art


I played loud wonderful disco music while dancing and creating art in the very spot you're standing on in nothing but my underwear....I have always worked in nothing but my under wear.

There were three floors of amazing art including a shower made of phones, a mirrored bicycle and a real traffic light. No one ever bothered you.

One could roam freely throughout the entire building and relax as long as you liked.

However what I have loved the most about my gallery was the joy, peace and hope that filled the atmosphere. Great times and tears were often experienced in this love filled building. I will greatly miss this place. I have never experienced the amount of love that constantly poured from this building. I believe my continuous worship to God filled this place with love. I will miss those who have entered here... for most became my most precious friends. I thank God so much for my time here. It has been the best seven years of my life.

I will always endeavor to keep this building dedicated to the arts....always again.
