The name means “circular view” in Greek. Built in 1887, designedby Cummings and Sears, the domed building was designed to display a 360 degreepainting of The Battle of Gettysburg that is 400 feet long and 50 high. The painting is now in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in a new Cyclorama. In later years, the Cyclorama was used for roller skating, fairs, a garage, and the Boston Flower Exchange. Since 1970 it has served as a multi-purpose space for the Boston Center for the Arts.
