As the top of the spire is set into place, its creator Ray King and one of his assistants inspect the new art installation that gets closer and closer to its completion since work started back in August of 2019. The bottom half of the lights will be connected to the top, and then the wiring can be finished up before it's lighting that is expected to take place in early December. When completed, the spire will be over 109 feet tall and contain programmable color LED lights that can be changed.
