Thomas Jefferson’s Rotunda: Beginning its Third Century (Garden Week Lecture)

Rotunda at Dusk
Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library

APRIL 24, 2017 – 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This event has already occurred.

The reopening of the newly renovated Rotunda in the fall of 2016 has garnered widespread attention both locally and internationally. The heart of the University of Virginia’s Academical Village, it is also the centerpiece of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Two members of the Office of the University Architect, Senior Preservation Planner Brian E. Hogg and University Landscape Architect Mary V. Hughes, will provide an insider’s look at the process of planning, implementation and construction of this ten-year long project.

A selection of images from Special Collections will be displayed 30 minutes before and after the presentation.

Public spaces in the Rotunda will be open for viewing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., including the new interpretive center in the Lower East Oval Room.
