"A lot of research went into finding this very elegant solution." Rikke Foulke



The preservation of the murals is being led by fine arts conservator Rikke Foulke, Foulke Conservation. Members of the conservation team include: Patricia Buss, Teresa Duff, Cynthia Fiorini and Rhonda Wozniak. To date, 10 murals have been completed and expects to begin work on the Battlefield Scenes under the choir loft in 2016. Once finished, the team will move next to the least accessible murals – the high walls and ceiling – with the altar mural, Mary, Queen of Croatia, assumed to be the capstone of the project.
