Challenge

CLA was selected as the architectural materials conservator for St. Cecelia's restoration. Our historic paint analysis and plaster conditions survey provided the basis for the conservation and restoration plan. 

We were then retained to implement our plan. Two fine art murals were cleaned and conserved. Plaster wall sections, destroyed by water intrusion, were replaced with traditional lath and plaster, followed by decorative paint, gilding, and glazing methods needed to reinstate the original decoration.
