Lexington Public Library Clock
In the rotunda of the downtown branch of the Lexington Public Library, visitors can now see a truly one-of-a-kind work of public art: a spectacular ceiling clock—the largest in the world—accompanied by a five-story Foucault pendulum.
Inspired by a dream, the clock and pendulum were gifts of the late Lexington philanthropist Lucille Caudill Little, a generous supporter of the Kentucky arts community, in memory of her husband. The library web site has more background on the project.
