"Our 2019 renovation of Rodgers Hall aimed to incorporate modern systems and materials while harmoniously showcasing the building’s historic qualities,” said Mark Baker, principal architect of Baker Architecture + Design. “Modern interiors highlight architect John Gaw Meem’s original building details and Lloyd Moylan’s historic murals as key elements of place and identity in Rodgers Hall ... In previous Rodgers Hall alterations, this impressive fresco mural became obscured by inadequate lighting and surrounding furnishings. It was important for the architects and Highlands to recapture the drama and importance of this mural in the latest design."*
