Belding Theater at Bushnell Performing Arts Center

Hartford, CT

Comet tails and stars stream across the centerpiece of the 70 x 80 foot mural for the domed ceiling of the Belding theater. EverGreene artists engaged in a highly collaborative profess with the architects and designer, developing unusual painting techniques and a color palette for mottled metallics, pulsating stars, and deep blue space. The intriguing gold rays are our contemporary version of three- dimensional metallic effects popular in the Victorian and Art Deco periods.
