For the Cathedral of Saint Patrick, John Canning & Company was commissioned to reinstate the historic decorative scheme and create 22 new mural (16’ x 12’) depicting the life, death and resurrection of Christ. A faux stained glass window series was also created for the Sanctuary. The faux stained glass is completely simulated and created through the use of decorative paint treatments and the reflection of light.
John Canning & Company also conducted a historic paint study to uncover original decorative motifs and colors that would be reinstated, linking the past to the present and future.
