AWARD WINNER The Lucy Moses Award

Beacon Theater

A variety of decorative techniques were employed including ornamental plaster restoration, scagliola restoration, gold leafing, aluminum leafing, and glazing.The elaborate plaster ornament and sculpture throughout the Beacon Theatre had been painted over with flat gold paint. We restored the gold leaf (and aluminum leaf in the case of the proscenium screen above the stage) and added various glazes to provide depth. The existing murals were cleaned and conserved and a new mural design was implemented in the rotunda.
