Fox Theatre Main Lobby, Atlanta, Georgia

The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia offers over 100,000 square feet of floor space surrounded by decorative finishes and ornamental plasterwork.  The Fox Theatre opened Christmas day 1929. It is decorated in Moorish and Egyptian themes and considered one of the premier performing arts venues in the country. Below is one of many projects that we have successfully completed for the Fox. 

            The 1998 lobby ceiling project was necessitated by ordinary environmental circumstances paired with extraordinary events such as plumbing leaks and a fire.  The treatment area, measuring approximately 100 feet by 35 feet, was surveyed and the differing levels of damage observed required a bifurcation of approaches.  Regions of deep plaster decay were identified for patching and pattern recreation while less disrupted areas were programmed for touch up.  All methods were selected and analyzed using the most badly damaged area as an on-site laboratory.  Prior experience in the lobby had proven the need for careful investigation; an earlier refurbishment of the walls had long hidden the stencil pattern revealed through the exposure shown in the  photo.
