The George Kolbenschlag + LWC Water Tower Re-painting Album

As the file on the re-painting project at the water tower at Lindsey Wilson College continues, more photos are being added to the construction chronology by George Kolbenschlag. This Sunday, the past photos have been linked into this single album which we hope everyone will re-visit often. We expect many more to pictures to be added while the envelope of time is open in our database. - EW

Lindsey Water Tower repainting: The Coronation



2016-06-10 - Lindsey Wilson Campus, Young Street side, Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag .
These brave fellows are showing the real meaning of being high. Itís not what it looks like. The tower is not being crowned. The apparatus being installed by these fearless guys is so the tower can be draped with "curtains" to keep the paint off my house and the cars in the parking lot at Lindsey. The curtains will be raised in the morning and brought back down in the evening because if the wind gets up they could act like huge sails and tower might end up a ship wreck in Canada. My understanding is they are planning on about eight weeks to complete the tower painting. - George Kolbenschlag. At the Thursday meeting of the Columbia/Adair Utilities District (CAUD), GM Lenny Stone and Commissioner Mike Newton confirmed that sandblasting is expected to start this morning, Friday, June 10, 2016. - CM

Lindsey Wilson Water Tower: Like a ride at the County Fair



2016-06-16 - Lindsey Wilson Campus, Young Street side, Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.
Looks much like a new ride for the county fair, but itís really just the LWC water tower getting ready for sand blasting and a new paint job. I did not get a chance to talk with the ride operator today, but I believe itís about ready to hoist the curtains so it can be sand blasted. Itís gotta be hot working up there. My understanding is they are planning on about eight weeks to complete the tower painting. - George Kolbenschlag.

Another look at the LWC Water Tower project



2016-06-19 - Young Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.
The curtain goes up at the dress rehearsal at the LWC water tower production of "Letís not paint the town." Or cause a sand storm. The curtain is to keep the sand from dusting the neighborhood while itís being sand blasted in preparation for the painting and to keep the paint from painting neighborhood cars and houses. The sand blasting should be underway this week. - George Kolbenschlag

LWC Water Tower Sandblasting/Painting Shroud 25 Jun 2016



2016-06-26 - Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY - Photo by Innocent Bystander .
A photo from a moment in the painting of the Lindsey Wilson Water Tower, which we're using to supplement the ongoing serial by tower neighbor George Kolbenschlag, was taken Saturday afternoon June 25, 2016, while, apparently, work was still going on. The photographer said that before dusk, the shroud had been lifted. In any case the backlit art at the top ofthe shroud is great industrial art, and raises the question: Has any location, anywhere, kept one of these shrouds in place for special occasions? Has anyone already invented a way to project movable cinematic effects from inside a shroud? For instance, is there technology already in place which would allow a virtual fireworks show on the fourth of July or on the many occasions when fireworks explode when the Nation's Number One Blue Raider Soccer Teams score? A more skilled Googler might find where it has happened. Clicking Read More accesses the entire George Kolbenschlag + LWC Water Tower Repainting Album.
