The Bench Project
All of these painted churches had large grounds beside them, with an additional building or two to support the annual feasts or whatever other activities go on.
There were a couple of people inside the church who’d come there with a guide. I didn’t listen to much the guide had to say, but I did hear her say that the church’s 2017 feast – which usually attracts four or five thousand people* – was cancelled because the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey created some concerns about food safety.
Anyway, I liked the benches and bench project and that one folding chair. And the pile of leaves.
Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church
High Hill, Texas
*In 2000, the population of the town was 116. To put things into a bit of perspective.
