Join APT DC and the National Park Service for our annual volunteer cleaning event at the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall!
Dedicated in 1995, the Korean War Veterans Memorial commemorates the sacrifice of the millions of American and allied partners who fought during the Korean War. Nineteen stainless steel statues, sculpted by Frank Gaylord of Barre, Vermont stand roughly seven feet tall and represent an ethnic cross section of America. The Mural Wall was designed by Louis Nelson of New York, New York and consists of forty-one panels extending over 164 feet. Also on site are the Pool of Remembrance and the United Nations Wall.
We'll be working from 9AM-12PM on Saturday, October 5th to clean the Memorial figures using non-toxic detergents and perform some light conservation treatments like cold waxing and buffing.
Even though we will be providing basic training and consider all materials to be used safe to handle, we recommend you come prepared with the following:
Note: We will not be providing AIA credits for this event.
