Historic Mural in Nevada Finds a New Home

Our intrepid team took an entire day to remove this mural from the wall in the Nevada Public Safety Building, where it hung for over 40 years. It was then covered with silicone paper, rolled onto a giant cardboard cylinder, and stored away in a plastic bag to keep it clean until it can be reinstalled some day.

An article for this historic Nevada mural move can be seen here.

This incredible mural had to be cut into four pieces to be moved to its new location in Bonner Springs, Kansas. Van Witt Fine Art Conservation was on hand to put it back together.

The Allegory of Tulsa 

This 15 foot mural had been rolled up in a warehouse for decades. VWFA was tasked to clean and restore the mural of years of accumulation of airborne grime, old adhesive, and discolored varnish on the verso.
