The Center for Painted Wall Preservation is a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of eighteenth and nineteenth century paint decorated plaster walls. The walls we study were painted by some of America's most significant early folk artists including Rufus Porter, J.D.Poor and Orison Woods. Our goal Is to survey and document these painted and stenciled walls, In situ or in collections; to further the appreciation of this vulnerable and rare art form and serve as a resource for the conservation and preservation of painted plaster walls for future generations.
