2018 Statue of Freedom Conservation Work

View of the Statue of Freedom surrounded by scaffolding for conservation atop the U.S. Capitol dome.

The Architect of the Capitol constructed scaffolding around the Statue of Freedom to prepare for the tri-annual inspection and preservation efforts of the statue. The conservation of the art included washing the statue, inspecting and documenting the condition of the surfaces, replacing caulking and epoxy fills, sharpening the lightning points and reapplying a protective coating.
