The project is restoring historic 1888 decorative paint patterns. These mock-ups will be installed in the near future in the restored Wyoming Supreme Court Chamber and the Capitol Rotunda. The artists are from EverGreene Architectural Arts.
Historic paint studies have revealed that very extensive trompe l’oeil patterns dating back to 1888 were located throughout the Capitol corridors and in the Supreme Court Chamber. This style of painting creates an optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions.
