UVa Rotunda's Dome to Stay Unpainted for Summer


June 27, 2013

If you haven't had a chance to see the copper roof on the University of Virginia Rotunda, you still have time.

Mother Nature is causing a delay in the painting project.

Crews were planning to paint the dome white just before final exercises in May, but rain got in the way.

Now, the hot weather is causing another delay.

Crews have decided to wait until the fall before resuming their work.
