Obama’s Temple Transformed Overnight

leave a comment »


Well, Obama is the candidate of change. The Greek temple backdrop at Invesco Field has suddenly become the White House.

Corky Siemasko of the New York Daily News has this report:

Barack Obama will deliver his acceptance speech Thursday from a stage that symbolically spans the ages.

By day it harkens back to the temples of ancient Greece, the birthplace of democracy, with columns made of plywood painted off-white.

Illuminated at night, the stage evokes the White House, with ten steps leading up to the top of a raised platform from which Obama will make his historic address to some 80,000 supporters.
