Illinois State Capitol, Room 400

Springfield, IL

Based on forensic evidence, EverGreene reinstated the original decorative scheme of Room 400 at the Illinois State Capitol. Portrait murals of Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and a Civil War Soldier were conserved. Elaborate stenciling was painted on canvas in their New York studio before installation on site. Contracting directly with the Illinois State Office of the Architect of the Capitol, EverGreene has performed restoration work throughout the building over the course of several years and multiple phases.
