    Progress Update

    We are continuing to deck the endless frames we've spent the past weeks constructing.  We have finally gone vertical, erecting a wall for the sound/projection booth as well as cladding the gentle curve created by the trusses that are the structural support for the walls of the bandshell.  This work will keep us very busy over the next couple of weeks until we begin to ship the modules to Clifton Forge for assembly.

    We were joined this afternoon by renowned photographer Jeff Goldberg.  He will be back at ESL tomorrow morning.  Additionally, he will photograph the pieces being craned into place on site and the finished construction.  Last year he photographed design/buildLAB's Covington Farmers Market.
