Maker Decoupage Art Activity and Talk

May 2 at 12:00 pm1:00 pm

Salem Visitor Center 2 New Liberty Street Salem, MA 01970
Free

As restoration of a 19th century decoupage wall mural is completed, join National Park Service conservators for this special opportunity to learn how they diligently removed years of varnish, coal dust, and nicotine from the mural. The once cloudy, but now vibrant cutouts of vaudeville, opera, minstrel, and magician’s posters adorning the historic wall are bound to spark creativity. After the short talk, make and take your own decoupage art inspired by this historic one-of-a-kind art mural. We will supply you with all the materials to create your own decoupage art! Feel free to bring your brown bag lunch.
