Many years after the death of Aline in 1972, artist John Patrick Cobb painted the white washed interior with inspiring Biblical murals. The murals depict Old Testament stories along the north wall and imagery from the New Testament on the south wall. John Cobb entered the Rhode Island School of Design in 1976, pursued independent study in Europe and later returned to Austin where he received his art degree at St. Edward’s University in 1983.
