UVA Postpones Painting The Rotunda Roof Until The Fall

The University of Virginia’s Rotunda will keep its copper roof until the fall.     The recent hot spell has pushed back the timetable for painting it white.     UVA originally planned to do the painting job in early May, but we got too much rain.    The roof was white for several decades (pictured) before the University launched its restoration project.
