Utah State Capitol

Salt Lake City, UT

Designed by Richard K.A. Kletting and completed in 1916, the Utah State Capitol underwent a massive seismic retrofit that was completed in 2009. EverGreene restored the decorative painting in the main dome located 165‐ft above the floor and restored the WPA murals on the rotunda frieze (cyclorama) and pendentives. About 90% of the skydome mural was repainted to replicate the original, which included a flock of seagulls, representing the state bird. The two large metal lay lights adjacent to the dome in the atrium spaces measuring approximately 40’ x 100’ were scraped, primed, and prepped for painting.
