The Edgartown Whaling Church Mural Restoration is a short documentary film produced by Martha's Vineyard Productions that chronicles the history of the Edgartown Whaling Church, the events that led up to the discovery of a photograph from the 1870s that depicts an image of a long lost mural inside the church, and the restoration process of recreating the lost mural for the public's benefit.

The documentary was made possible by funding in part from the Martha's Vineyard Center for Visual Arts Grant. (artsmv.org)
