John Canning & Co. was chosen to perform work at The Bushnell Theatre, a place commonly referred to by many as a “Connecticut Cultural Treasure.” The work was similar to that of what Canning executed at Waterbury City Hall, and included the restoration of the gilded dome and cupola. The work involved paint removal, sheet metal repairs, caulking & sealing, painting, and gold leaf gilding of the dome.
