New Doors Honor History
New Doors Honor HistoryJanuary 11, 2021
Since its opening in 1940, MSU’s Auditorium doors have welcomed such dignitaries as Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr., and some of music’s greats—Bob Dylan, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis, The Beastie Boys, Prince and more recently Panic at the Disco, Drake and John Legend. And along with them, hundreds of thousands of audience members and visitors.
After 80 years of wear, tear and unforgiving weather taking their toll on the grand entryways to the MSU Auditorium and Fairchild Theater, replacement became necessary. Thanks to talented craftspeople like Steven Rondeau, an MSU carpenter, and Pam Hebeler, an MSU painter, all 18 doors were recreated with an extreme attention to detail.
