Installation of a dedicated environmental control system and LED lighting in Louis Nevelson’s 28-seat Chapel of the Good Shepherd in Saint Peter’s Church in New York City.

Saint Peter’s Church is undertaking a $2.1M conservation project of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd by Louise Nevelson (1899-1988). The sculptures are housed in Midtown Manhattan within “Citigroup Center”, a pioneering corporate/religious/public complex build in the 1970s. During her lifespan Nevelson was a cultural icon addressing complex dynamics of social change: feminism, mid-century urban abandonment and later revival, commercialization, and a search for meaning in a post-War age. Nevelson earned the National Medal of Arts in 1985. She was known as "the grande dame of contemporary sculpture" and "one of the most imaginative and original sculptors on the American scene." As today’s art historians reexamine the modern era’s lost greats, they continue to find her exemplary. Preventive conservation for this public installation requires localized equipment, and changes to lighting, safety, and security to meet conservation goals and enhance environmentally-sustainable practices.
