We were in Redding yesterday. In their old downtown there's a lot of urban renewal projects - it's making a big difference in the area. One area used to be a covered mall. They took the roof off and made it more like a plaza - it's very nice. The supports that used to hold the roof have been left and turned into assorted art structures - some now look like old architectural columns, some look like this. In the day the light shines through the stained glass and at night they are lit from inside. I wish I'd taken more than this one photo. Some were like this one and some had double rows of glass with a dark metal space between. I'm thinking there's a quilt idea or two in this.
