Artist Stacia Hummel is restoring the entrance of the Columbia School of Music at 401 Walnut Street. The process entails navigating the ornate details of the historic door and frame while painstakingly removing several layers of old paint. The final paint job will include marbling around the door frame and walnut grain on the door itself.
