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.
