Buildings impact their communities, and help shape a sense of place. As a graduate of SAIC interested in fresco painting, murals, and public art, Jeff Greene studied the relationship between art and architecture. He came to understand that how a building is perceived, and as a result, how it impacts its environment, is largely influenced by its aesthetic. Jeff then pursued the craftsmanship of paint and plaster from classically trained artisans, and founded EverGreene Architectural Arts 35 years ago. Since then, He has led the company to become the largest decorative arts firm in the nation, taking on large scale projects such as state capitols, cathedrals, theaters, federal buildings, and commercial spaces. Through leading hands on restoration in historic spaces, Jeff has approached preservation and conservation in a very unique way. During this presentation, Jeff will discuss the preservation process and what makes restoration important to the development of our spatial environment.
