Yonkers City Council Chambers

Yonkers, NY

In 2006, EverGreene cleaned and con­served 11 murals (executed between 1911 and 1912) adorning the walls of the City Council Chamber. At that time, Ev­erGreene was also asked to perform an investigation of the original decorative scheme of the Council Chambers interior.

Three years later, EverGreene was asked to return to the Council Chambers, this time to perform a restoration of the Chamber. EverGreene’s decorative paint­ers created a mockup to interpret the study and create a balanced decorative palette.

EverGreene artisans performed surface preparation, base painting, polychrom­ing, gilding, glazing, and lettering.
