Naval Air Base Historic Mural To Be Saved



Historic mural on Naval Air Base

The Spanish landing in the new world.



A week or so ago, I was asked to consult for the Naval Air Base in Fort Lauderdale Florida. They had 95 deg., 95 % humidity and forest fires that filled the air with smoke and ash. I was happy to leave!


They have a historic building infested with black mold that is going to be demolished and they need to know the “ins and outs” of getting an historic mural removed. A simple job= $15K… a difficult job=$275K. Why the difference?


Brittle paint and glued to the wall with lead white adhesive make this a very difficult removal job (to do it safely). But it can be done…
