The color scheme of the nearly 90-year-old Angelus Temple has been for the most part a relatively simple affair over the decades: a dome of silver or light gray rising above curving walls and columns of white. This week, however, a crew of painters began slathering the Echo Park church founded by evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in a new color scheme that seems inspired by the shades of the giant new parking garage next door. One worker said it will take 250 gallons of paint (which seems kind of small) to cover the church, a National Historic Landmark, in three different colors: Egyptian Sand, Desert Suede and Trite White. What would Sister Aimee think?
