The Center for Painted Wall Preservation (CPWP) is dedicated to the research and preservation of eighteenth and early nineteenth century American paint-decorated plaster walls. Our goal is to survey and document these walls, in situ or in collections; to further the appreciation of this rare and vulnerable art form; and serve as a resource for the preservation of painted plaster walls for future generations. 


The Center for Painted Wall Preservation (CPWP) has an all-volunteer board of leading painted wall experts, architectural historians, and decorative arts professionals. We also regularly call on a team of advisors to shape and support our mission.
