|Rotunda Dome - Stained Glass and Stenciling|
Craftsmen from Conrad Schmitt Studios are installing the recently conserved stained glass windows in South Dakota’s State Capitol rotunda dome. Passersby, including the governor and lieutenant-governor, gazed upward to watch the 64 curved panels of colored glass rise through the air in mesh nets. In this video from Keloland news, CSS Project Director Kevin Grabowski discusses the challenges of working on these fragile, antique panels.
