New featured picture by User:NotFromUtrecht: the striking facade of the Curve theatre in Leicester, UK, the city's main performing arts centre. It was designed by Rafael Viñoly, a Uruguayan architect who lives in the US, and was opened in 2008. We recommend viewing at high resolution.
This week's "Features and admins" covers Sunday 24 – Saturday 30 April
There were no new admins last week. At the time of publication there is one live RfA: Catfish Jim and the soapdish, due to finish Wednesday.
New featured picture: Bronzino's 1545 portrait of Eleanor of Toledo
Featured picture: detailed surface structure of a rusty chain on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
Eight images were promoted. Medium-sized images can be viewed by clicking on "nom":
Eleanor of Toledo (nom; related article), the mannerist portrait of Eleanor of Toledo, who wears a heavily brocaded dress slashed with black arabesques, with her son Giovanni by Bronzino, 1545. (Painted by Bronzino; photographed by the Yorck Project.) picture at right
Rusty chain (nom; related article), heavy rust on the links of a chain near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco; the surface had been continuously exposed to moisture and salt-laden spray, causing surface breakdown, cracking, and flaking of the metal. (Created by User:WikipedianMarlith.) picture at right
New featured picture: a group of Sanderlings, circumpolar Arctic breeders and long-distance migrants, wintering across the equator down to South America, Southern Europe, Africa, and Australia. This group was photographed by User:Mbz1 at Ocean Beach, San Fransisco. The Signpost was impressed with the composition, which is why we avoided using the scroll-across panoramic function: please widen your window if necessary.
Information about new admins at the top is drawn from their user pages and RfA texts, and occasionally from what they tell us directly.
