New Statue of Ceres Scheduled for Installation Later This Year

Last week I visited the Vermont Granite Museum in Barre for the "State House Statue Launch" and a closeup look at the carving of a new statue of Ceres for the top of the State House dome. During the ceremony, Governor Phil Scott made the announcement that artists Chris Miller and Gerry Williams had been selected to receive the prestigious "Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts" .

While I was there I had a chance to visit with Ceres (AKA Brenda Greika) about her time "Off the Dome".  You can watch my interview with her here:

Between now and sometime in middle to late November, Vermonters will have the opportunity  to watch sculptor Chris Miller carve the new 14-1/2 foot statue at the Vermont Ganite Museum in Barre at all times of day and night.
