Mural, before conservation Mural, after conservation
This detail of Barry Faulkner’s Declaration of Independence mural depicts Founding Fathers Joseph Hewes and Edward Rutledge. The photograph at left shows some of the buckling where the mural had lost connection to the wall. The photograph at right shows what that section looks like after it was restored and rehung in the Rotunda. (Photo by Olin Conservation, Inc.)
