Project Description

The artwork “Mexican Tree of Life” by artist Barbara Beall was created in 1979 for Los Nietos Library. The site has since been rededicated as Los Nietos Community and Senior Center, and during the site’s renovation, Fine Arts Conservation completed the restoration of the tile mural. The treatment plan included cleaning, filling of losses in the glazing, repair of losses in the tiles, and refabrication of losses in the frame.
