Conservation specialist takes a look inside the Jayhawk

Greg Marsters describes damage of interior features

Greg Marsters, a plastering artisan and conservator based in Boise, Idaho, became familiar with the Jayhawk Theatre when he was in Topeka to help with renovations of the Kansas Capitol.

He’d walk past the theater on his way to the Statehouse, hoping someday it would be restored, too.

In 1986, Marsters established Custom Plaster, a company that specializes in historic restoration and conservation of flat and ornamental plaster and decorative paint. He recently studied photographs of the interior of the Jayhawk Theatre, providing descriptions of some of its features and what work needs to be done to restore them.
