Decoupage Art Activity and Conservator Talk

  • Salem Visitor Center 2 New Liberty Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

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 mural. We will supply you with all the materials to create your own decoupage masterpiece! This event is free and open to the public of all ages. feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.
