Music of the Spheres



The ceiling of the Belding Theater at Hartford's Bushnell Performing Arts Center has a colorful mural called "Music of the Spheres."  The mural portrays comets and stars in a simulated art deco style.  The art deco style was probably chosen because the larger, adjoining Mortenson Hall is a 1930s art deco hall.
