Lakewood Memorial Chapel
The interior designer, Charles Lamb from Lamb Studios in New York was commissioned by the Lakewood Board of Trustees at a cost of $25,000 to complete the chapels interior in 1909.Lamb traveled to Rome to enlist Italy's most accomplished artists who had just completed a project in the Vatican. Working in Venice, they created more than 10 million mosaic pieces, called tessellae, from marble, colored stone, and glass fused with gold and silver.The tiles, each no longer than a fingernail, were attached to gummed cloth and shipped to Minneapolis. The artists themselves arrived in the summer of 1909 and painstakingly assembled the masterpiece inside the chapel.
