The Michigan State Capitol project was a complete restoration of the House of Representatives, Senate Chambers, Adjacent Areas, and Public Spaces, that involved all aspects of the decorative arts. Approximately 45 elaborately decorated distemper ceilings were conserved and consolidated. All work was carried out while the legislation was in session, with minimal disruption to the occupants.
