“Gregori and Washington Hall” - Mark C. Pilkinton (Notre Dame)

Saturday September 8 at noon in the Snite Museum's Annenberg Auditorium

At the heart of our campus, in the interiors of the Basilica and the Main Building, Luigi Gregori’s designs are a familiar and iconic part of Notre Dame. Mark Pilkinton, Professor of Film, Television, and Theatre and author of a new history of the building (Washington Hall at Notre Dame: Crossroads of the University, 1864-2004), explores new information about Gregori’s contribution to the interior of Washington Hall in 1894, unseen since his images were painted over in 1956.
