Artwork construction time lapse from Bechtler Museum

Local model builder, Gene Hopkins, was commissioned in 2000 to build a complete, working 1/4 scale replica of Jean Tinguely's Cascade mobile sculpture currently hanging at the Carillon Tower in Charlotte. Hopkins made each piece by hand to duplicate the rotating parts, working lights and a fountain. The replica reconstruction is now installed and open for viewing by the public at the Bechtler.
