For the last 19 years, our friends at Trinity School have proudly hung an American flag adorned with painted handprints in their halls in dedication to 9/11. Over time, this beautiful testament has taken on some damage due to its heavy weight and exposure to dust. Our incredible team in the Textile Conservation Lab set out to conserve the flag through cleaning, stabilizing any vulnerable loop areas, minimizing creases and bagging, and creating a new display system.
