The Wesleyan Connection: Campus Snapshot

UP, UP AND AWAY: Wesleyan’s Davison Art Center received a new fiberglass cupola atop its building Aug. 9. The new addition replaces a deteriorated wood cupola, which was removed in July. The new cupola is a replica of the former cupola.

The 1,500-pound white, decorative cupola was hoisted by crane to the DAC’s rooftop.
Contractors lower the cupola to a copper-rimmed base.
The new cupola brings beauty to the DAC second and third-story views, as well as the DAC’s courtyard below. Macri Roofing provided the labor. (Photos by Olivia Bartlett)
