Salon Doré Conservation

For 18 months, from 2012 to 2014, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco conservators and technicians worked to conserve and restore the 18th-century period room known as the Salon Doré at the Legion of Honor. This complex project brought together a diverse team of experts, from architects to electricians, each with a unique skill set necessary for the project’s successful execution. Throughout the entire process, conservators worked in an open gallery that allowed the public to observe their work in action.
