Community Projects

Community-Project
Our community service projects provide a unique opportunity for our members, combining hands on training outside the classroom with professionals in the field and the chance to help strengthen both our gilding community and communities in need.  Take advantage of these exceptional opportunities to spend time with other gilders, further your gilding knowledge and support your Society of Gilders.

In conjunction with the opening of the Society of Gilders “Museum of the Gilding Arts”, the ribbon ornament on Pontiac’s Desert Storm monument was gilded. The monument is located across the street from the museum, on the grounds of the historic County Courthouse. The first of what will be many community projects in Pontiac, it was a gesture of gratitude to the City for their generosity to the Society.
