Description

In the 1930s through the early 1940s, Indiana University’s Bloomington campus was expanded through New Deal funding. The construction of the IU Auditorium (formerly the Hall of Music) began in 1938 with PWA funding. The Auditorium is built with Southern Indiana limestone and houses Thomas Hart Benton’s “Century of Progress” murals.
