Stars on the ceiling of Weir's studio - Photo by Barry McCormick

Painter Julian Alden Weir installed stars on the ceiling of all three of his studios. He had three studios: one in New York City, one in Windham, CT and one behind his home in Branchville, CT. Visitors will be able to see the original stars in his Branchville studio at Weir Farm National Historic Site once the Weir Studio has been restored in late 2013.
