Richard Neutra Cyclorama - Current Article in the NY Times

Postby ch » Mon Jul 07, 2008 3:52 am

This article concerning the restoration of the painting appeared today in the New York Times but with no mention of the Richard Neutra designed building that has housed it.



I can't find anything about the current status of the original building which was slated for demolition. Did it ever happen?

From the article: (When its $15 million restoration is done, the cyclorama will be displayed in the Gettysburg National Military Park’s new museum and visitor center here, filling a building that evokes a Pennsylvania round barn)

Cyclorama Photos

Postby modernvintage » Mon Aug 11, 2008 1:01 pm

I was in Gettysburg last week and took some photos of the Neutra Cyclorama. I also went to the new visitor center but the painting isnt open yet, it's still being restored. I spoke with the National Parks representative regarding the Neutra building and was told it has been condemned and is scheduled to be destroyed but wouldn't tell me when. She suggested I write the Park Ranger which I will post the address when I get a minute.

Please take the time to join all three petitions to save this building.
There are 3 online petitions. I didn't find this one on a LL search. I only found the two from the Neutra site http://www.neutra.org/

Here is the link to the online petition. http://www.mission66.com/cyclorama/savecyc.html


By the way, the park was awesome.... I took the CD car tour with the wife.

Has anyone heard any news on the Neutra Cyclorama? I checked out the website and the judge will not allow it it to be torn down. I don't see a date so I'm not sure when it was posted.
