Glass House Collective is bringing gospel music live to Glass Street from churches in East Chattanooga and surrounding communities on May 24. Gospel on Glass is a daylong event that brings people together to praise God, worship, shop and play.
Over the past couple of years, Glass House Collective has observed the importance of church and its impact in the East Chattanooga communities, said officials. Gospel on Glass will help support community-driven change in urban neighborhoods. Working with area churches and resident artists, they are coordinating choirs, spoken word and art exhibitions.
Glass Street is looking into the heritage of the area and is paying homage to what keeps residents rooted in the community and moving forward. Several churches in the area, Mt. Canaan Baptist Church, the World’s Church of the Living God, Olivet Baptist Church, Orchard Knob Missionary Baptist Church, and Terra Vista Baptist Church, will participate. Their church choirs and singing groups will perform throughout the day coupled with other live entertainment. It is an event for the whole family.
The physical location will be in the community space at the intersection of Glass Street and N. Chamberlain. Over the last two years the are has seen transformation through the addition of trees, landscaping, street lights, crosswalks and more. Now it is time to activate this space.
This daylong event will also feature live art exhibitions, spoken word, vendors, art galleries, food vendors and children's activities.
