Rain Damaged Cyclorama Painting

Two days of heavy rain caused over $1.7 million in floor damage in the Atlanta area. One of the casualties was the Cyclorama’s painting of the Battle of Atlanta. In the past, the Grant Park building housing the painting had leaked frequently, but this was the first time there was actual water damage to the painting itself.
