LWC Water Tower Sandblasting/Painting Shroud 25 Jun 2016

2016-06-26 - Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY - Photo by Innocent Bystander .
A photo from a moment in the painting of the Lindsey Wilson Water Tower, which we're using to supplement the ongoing serial by tower neighbor George Kolbenschlag, was taken Saturday afternoon June 25, 2016, while, apparently, work was still going on. The photographer said that before dusk, the shroud had been lifted. In any case the backlit art at the top ofthe shroud is great industrial art, and raises the question: Has any location, anywhere, kept one of these shrouds in place for special occasions? Has anyone already invented a way to project movable cinematic effects from inside a shroud? For instance, is there technology already in place which would allow a virtual fireworks show on the fourth of July or on the many occasions when fireworks explode when the Nation's Number One Blue Raider Soccer Teams score? A more skilled Googler might find where it has happened. Clicking Read More accesses the entire George Kolbenschlag + LWC Water Tower Repainting Album.
