Missouri State Capitol

Jefferson City, MO

During the renovation of the Missouri State Capitol’s Senate Chamber, EverGreene restored ornamental plaster, decorative paint, gilding, historic wood furnishings, and original murals.

Curved medallions along the oculus and around each column were recast in the EverGreene studio, then painted and gilded on site. A historically-sympathetic palette was implemented in the chambers and conservators cleaned and in-painted original murals. The medallions were in very rough shape, so EverGreene took them down and had them shipped to New York City to be recast; then painting, polychrome, glazing, and gilding were completed on site.
