Painting the Great Window
May 20, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm CDT
This program has been made possible through a grant from Indiana Humanities in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Learn more about the recently restored fan window that sat above the Door of Promise at the Harmonist Brick Church as well as other examples of surviving finishes in New Harmony’s historical buildings from historic paint researcher, Matthew J. Mosca.
Matthew J. Mosca, is a nationally recognized consultant in the field of historic paint research and restoration, employing microscopy, ultraviolet light exposure and microchemical testing as a means of identifying the constituents of paint finishes. He received his education at Cornell University, the Graduate School of the Department of Agriculture and the McCrone Research Institute and was a National Trust scholar of the Attingham School, Attingham England in 1978. Several projects have won awards for excellence over the years, and some, such as Mount Vernon and Hope Lodge, where the technology of the eighteenth century was replicated as accurately as possible, have been considered landmarks in the evolution of the field.
