This tour will visit the Roman Catholic Church of the Transfiguration, a unique structure in Queens’ Maspeth neighborhood, combining mid-century design and Lithuanian folk elements. Constructed in 1962 to designs by Lithuanian architect Jonas Mulokas, the church received an honorable mention from the Queens Chamber of Commerce Building Awards program.  The interior was created by one of the most renowned 20th century Lithuanian artists, Vytautas Kazimieras Jonyas, who designed interiors for more than 60 churches across the world.
