Will Rogers Complex Architectural Rendering
The City of Fort Worth commissioned Carrabba Conservation to treat a 1930's-era architectural rendering used in a building proposal for the city's Will Rogers Complex. This 30½" x 85” sketch,  Buildings For Pleasure Grounds, Parks & Playgrounds by the Wyatt C. Hedrick & Elmer G. Withers Architectural Company Inc., depicts the coliseum, memorial tower, auditorium, and other iconic Fort Worth buildings, many of which still stand.

The framed sketch, executed in graphite, gouache, watercolor and silver metallic paint, had hung in the courthouse without protective glass. The paper had been exposed to cigarette smoke, non-buffered wooden framing materials, and light. These conditions and the poor quality materials used to create and mount the work had discolored the piece immensely. In addition, the drawing had been spattered with green oil-based paint; a well-intentioned attempt to remove this paint had created a larger stain. There were gouges and scratches on the surface of the drawing and the acidic, brittle backing board was jeopardizing the sketch. A section of the sky was lighter than the surrounding area, most likely from a sign or plaque that had covered that portion of the drawing and shielded it from light.

Preservation Process
Because the sketch had been mounted to a board and directly nailed to the frame, Carrabba Conservation began the treatment process by removing the fragile piece from its framing. The reverse of the heavily-soiled drawing was carefully vacuumed and the surface thoroughly cleaned with brushes and soot sponges to remove dirt and debris.

The drawing was manually separated from the board with care, at which point the sketch was ready for washing. Slowly the work was introduced to moisture in order to relax the paper fibers, then the drawing was “washed” by placing wet blotters to the reverse. The absorbent blotters gradually wicked the dirt out of the paper and were frequently changed out until no dirt remained. For support, the drawing was fully mounted to an acid-free rag board. The paint spatters were reduced manually and all scratches and losses were in-painted as needed. The architectural rendering was then majestically framed and hung in its new home.
