How Do You Move a Six Ton Painting-- Part 2: Moving the Cyclorama

Before the move, the painting was cut into two pieces at a seam.  Both were rolled onto gigantic custom-built steel spools, each taller than a four story building.

Holes were made into the concrete roof of the old Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum and cranes lifted the spools out of them and then they were placed onto waiting trucks for the nine mile trip to the Atlanta History Center.
