Morning sunlight breaks over “Three Musicians,” a sculpture by artist Samuel Cashwan. Depicting a bass player, drummer and saxophonist, the sculpture was created in 1940 and resides just north of the Billman Music Pavilion. Photo by Nick Schrader.
Infrastructure, Planning and Facilities carpenter Steve Rondeau puts the finishing touches on new doors for the MSU Auditorium. The doors’ replacement has been an extensive project, resulting in 24 custom doors with unique measurements at both the Auditorium and Fairchild Theatre entrances. Photo by Nick Schrader.
Installation begins on the new MSU Auditorium doors, completing the efforts of over a year’s worth of hard work. The result is more than just an entrance to the auditorium; it’s a piece of art in its own right. Photo by Nick Schrader.
