This is a story of a building changing owners and functionality through the years. In the 1800s it was a United Methodist Church. A hundred years later it became a Baptist church. Thirty-eight years later it became Blue Mark Studios. Bryan Seay, owner of the Blue Mark Studios, had a dream that he want to make real. He wanted to create a cultural and arts nucleus. With the help of local contractors he renovated the St. James Church into environment where artists can create can thrive. The Blue Mark Studios plays an important part in the Atlanta Art and cultural scene.
