Painting the Pavilion

A two-person crew puts a new coat of white paint on the support structure of the Pavilion’s netting in Riverfront Park, Tuesday, April 16, 2019. The cable netting was covered with a tent when it was built as the U.S. Pavilion for Expo ’74. Since the fair, the tent fabric has deteriorated each time it was replaced. Planners for the $63 million park renovation have added rectangular lighted panels to the cable netting and the pavilion interior is being transformed into an amphitheater for events which can also be used passively.
