Ken Leslie's Gold Dome Cycle [275]

by

comment

7/16/12: For the past year, artist Ken Leslie has been visiting the Vermont State House in Montpelier every other week to work on his Gold Dome Cycle. 

He climbs 201 stairs to its highest point, above the gold dome and below Ceres' feet, and paints one section of the view into the pages of his circular book. 

The finished work will show a 360 degree panorama of Montpelier made in 365 days. Eva visits with Ken in the "drum of the dome" and watches the final page come to life.

Music: La Strada, New Home,"Mean That Much"
