Sargent Hall, looking north, ca. 1919

Historic restoration of Sargent’s lighting scheme (continued)

The 2003 restoration calls for the removal of the 1953 bucket-shaped fixtures. Sargent’s original sconces are to be restored and re-lit. Furthermore, the missing McKim sconces will be replicated with copies to be mounted in their original locations on either end of the west wall. While Sargent’s intended lighting scheme will predominate, supplemental lighting will be added to the Hall to illuminate the murals during educational programs and special events.
