MEDIA ALERT: Capitol Chandelier to be Lit Once Again Jan. 17
After a two year absence, the Minnesota State Capitol's stately and historic chandelier will return to its rightful place inside the Capitol dome. The chandelier was lowered in August 2010 to accommodate a dome repair project and so it could undergo conservation treatment.
WHAT: Raising and lighting of the State Capitol chandelier.
WHEN: Thursday, Jan. 17th.
TIME: 4 to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Minnesota State Capitol, 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul
In addition to witnessing the raising and lighting of the newly restored chandelier, Capitol visitors will enjoy early 1900's music provided by vocalist Erik Pearson and presentations by state government leaders.
