As CU's Christ Chapel takes shape, the first of four stained glass windows will be installed under the direction of Brandes.

"The windows were designed to perfectly capture the light," said Peter Brandes of Denmark.

The North facing window in bright yellows depicting "light and joy" will be the first of four beautiful stained glass windows installed in Cornerstone's Christ Chapel at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 7.

Under the direction of renowned artist Peter Brandes, a native of Denmark, each piece will be delicately placed into the window frame of the $15 million dollar chapel.

Each glass window is 25-foot tall by 17-foot wide, created uniquely on campus by Brandes. The windows, a gift from multiple donors, cost $1.2 million.

"The windows are positioned up so high that they will capture the light perfectly," said Brandes.

The window to be installed depicts Christ on the cross with his right arm falling down to his side in expectation of his descent from the cross. The apostles are shown in three corners of each window.
