Conrad Schmitt Studios is proud to play a part in the civic realm of decoration and restoration. Our work occupies the corridors of many government buildings, such as the White House Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia; the Dekalb County Courthouse in Sycamore, Illinois; and the Philadelphia City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Restoration work in these government settings ranges has been very rewarding. We feel we can use our services to preserve, in a sense, the history of our country, by preserving the buildings that our founding fathers took pride in building. Our artists are able to work as a team to refurbish deteriorating structures by restoring stained glass, scagliola, failing paint, faux paint and plaster of historic government monuments.
For instance, Conrad Schmitt Studios restored the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines, Iowa back to the way it looked when first erected between 1871 and 1886.
Or, for example, four beautiful murals in the Ottawa County Courthouse in Port Clinton, Ohio were yellowed with age. Through the phases of paint investigation and the skilled hands of our craftsmen, Conrad Schmitt Studios conserved the beloved murals back to their original splendor. Today and into the future, these murals will resound a picture of history captured inside the historic structure.
