7th Street Theatre > 2009 > October

Fun things that board members can do

Well, the plastering will start very soon, and as you can see — we are ready! EverGreene Architectural Arts was awarded the project, and the board is extremely confident that EverGreene will do a professional and historically accurate restoration of the ceiling. Jeff Greene, of EverGreene, was hired by the theatre earlier this year to conduct an investigation of the historic finishes in the 7th Street. Because we have met Jeff, seen his presentation, and are aware of the experienced staff, we are very pleased that EverGreene will be taking care of the theatre’s ceiling.

Ceiling update

It won’t be long before restoration of the historic atmospheric ceiling will be started. We had 28 prospective contractors come to the walk-through today and bids will be opened next week. Soon after that — the project will begin and we plan on it being completed before the end of January 2010. Stay tuned for more pictures and updates in the next few weeks.
