It has been an exciting few weeks at the WaterFire Arts Center!
The elevator shaft has been completed, the aerial bridge connecting the second-floor mezzanines is under construction at RI welding, and the window sills are nearly all in place and ready to receive their new glazing.
What used to be a dark and dank space has really begun to lighten up. Granted, without real glass in place and openings in the plywood safety cover filling the frames, a good rainstorm might temporarily bring it back to the condition it was in before the restoration began a few months ago! (Only for a few minutes until it dried out again.)
Our friend Rachel Driver took this great panoramic photographic that demonstrates the natural light we will be able to expect in The WaterFire Arts Center.
A new video is coming up soon, stay tuned!
