Manhattan Appellate Court
This Beaux Arts courthouse was built in 1900 by architect James Brown Lord. The National Society of Mural Painters assisted architect to design a complete mural program for the courthouse. All of the chosen artists were instructed that their compositions were to follow the designated general theme of “civic responsibility” depicted in a manner that was complimentary to the adjacent friezes for a visually harmonious effect.
EverGreene was first commissioned to perform a conservation feasability study to assess the full extent of mural deterioration and to determine the full scope of a conservation project. EverGreeene was subsequently awarded the conservation of the murals themselves.
