    Please join John Canning and David Riccio for a unique tour of the interior of H.H. Richardson's Trinity Church on Copley Square, artistically decorated by John LaFarge and a team of talented artists. They will discuss LaFarge's use of encaustic paint for the artwork and decoration as well as the current conservation of two murals and their approach to conserving and reinstating the unstable oil finishes and encaustic paint.

    John Canning has over 45 years experience as a practitioner, educator, and advocate in the fields of historic finishes and preservation.

    Please note that the current mural conservation work will be accessed via pipe scaffolding. Attendees wishing to ascent the scaffold will need to bring their own hard hat and wear appropriate footwear; please bring your own hard hat if you have access to one. A limited quantity of hard hats may be available for use during this portion of the tour; however, we are still in the process of confirming quantity. A signed waiver form will also be required.
