Minnesota State Capitol

Saint Paul, MN

In 1998, EverGreene performed the gilding of bronze sculptures in front of the Minnesota State Capitol. Gilders prepared the surface by stripping, acid washing and priming, and then sized and gilded the sculpture with double weight 23.75-karat gold leaf.

Then in 2012, EverGreene took on regilding the exterior dome of the Minnesota Capitol building, which included rigging, stripping, and surface preparation as part of a larger effort to restore the capitol to its 1905 appearance.
