Description This painting was commissioned to be a part of the design for a book cover. The book ('Globalization and Its Effects on Urban Ministry in the 21st Century') is a Festschrift in honor of Dr. Manuel Ortiz, a mentor and friend, and Professor of Ministry and Urban Missions, Emeritus, at Westminster Theological Seminary. It was inspired by aerial photos of various cities around the world. Clockwise from top left: downtown Tokyo; favelas in Rio; rowhouses in Philadelphia; and Marrakesh in Morocco. The crucifix itself is a freeway interchange in LA.
