Maplewood Mall's Venetian Carousel

 

Maplewood Mall's Venetian Carousel

Produced by Libby Donohue

Visitors to Maplewood Mall will find more than retail shops and restaurants. The center of the mall is home to a double-decker Venetian carousel, meticulously designed and transported from Europe. Built in Venice, Italy, and reproduced from an 1898 German carousel design, this handcrafted masterpiece features 1,800 lights, a calliope, hand-painted murals and Brazilian wood floors. KFAI producer Libby Donohue hopped aboard the spinning teacups to experience it for herself.
