It’s What is on the Inside that Counts: EverGreene Architectural Arts Studio Tour and Presentation
Join HDC for a studio tour and presentation
by EverGreene Architectural Arts
While building exteriors are often the most lauded architectural features and contribute to the sense of urbanism that defines New York City, the interior of these historic buildings-the murals, decorative paint, ornamental plaster, gilding and other unique specialty finishes- make them even more spectacular and distinctive. These decorative arts, often the most significant and character-defining part of a historic building, grace the interiors of worship spaces, schools, museums, theaters, commercial, residential and government buildings, many dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Continuing the Historic Districts Council’s investigation of historic materials, this program will look at the extensive work, creativity and knowledge of materials that is required to preserve these decorative interiors. Join HDC for a studio tour and presentation by EverGreene Architectural Arts.
The program will visit the working studio of one of the most well-regarded architectural arts firms in North America. Attendees will be able to view the hands-on work being undertaken by EverGreene artisans to restore and, at times, remake crucial interior features. The program will also include a presentation by EverGreene staff to discuss the process of architectural arts projects, including working with architects and clients, developing historic color palettes, combining historic and modern materials, and options regarding replacement materials.
