This spring, the New York Landmarks Conservancy, ICAA/NY and EverGreene are sponsoring a 4-part series exploring the traditional trades and techniques implemented in historic restoration and new design. The classes, held at the EverGreene studio, will cover topics such as Murals & Conservation, Plaster, Stained Glass, and Decorative Finishes.
For the first course, Bill Mensching, Director of the Mural Studio, and conservator Neela Wickremesinghe will detail the steps involved in the restoration and re-creation of historic murals: from discovery and conservation to new design based upon archival photos. Case studies may include the Ohio Theatre Lobby (Cleveland), The Sherry-Netherland and the New York Public Library.
Space is limited and registration is required.
