Murals Conserved, Roosevelt Rotunda to Reopen

Maintenance workers prepare for the reopening of the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda after the American Museum of Natural History spent two years conserving William Andrew Mackay’s canvases depicting milestones in Roosevelt’s life. The 1935 murals, which cover more than 5,200 square feet of wall space, are some of the largest murals in a public building in the city.
