"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: Ana Alba, Patricia Buss, Teresa Duff, Cynthia Fiorini, Rachel Howard and Rhonda Wozniak. To date, 10 murals have been completed, and conservation of the Battlefield Scenes is anticipated to begin in May 2017.  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.
