Assessment Underway on Thomas Hart Benton Murals

On March 21-23, 2016, Andrea Chevalier, a paintings conservator with the Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA-Art Conservation) was on-site to perform a condition assessment of Thomas Hart Benton’s A Social History of the State of Missouri.  The colorful murals, which are located in the House Lounge, are a popular stop for visitors touring the Capitol.

The report detailing the condition of the 80-year-old murals is expected to be released in late April.  For more information on the project, please contact Commission Chair Dana Rademan Miller at
