Cleaning of the mural, “Crossing the Platte River – Pioneers of 1847″

In the main meeting room of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers in Salt Lake City, behind the pulpit is a large painting entitled Pioneers of 1847 Crossing the Platte River by famous pioneer artist Dan Weggeland. Not long ago, Nancy B. Eggbert generously donated the budget to clean and varnish this painting, which was VERY DIRTY! See this short video of the cleaning process!

Dan Weggeland did a lot of painting during his years and the DUP has quite a few of his artworks.
