Celebrating Hopkins' Historic Theater Building Lovell Hall

At an all-school assembly on Friday, March 31, the community shared in a celebration of Lovell Hall, which closed its doors permanently on March 10, 2023, to make way for a renovated Academic and Performing Arts Center.

To begin the celebration, Head of School Matt Glendinning revealed the excavation of a time capsule that had been hidden behind the corner stone of the building in 1959, when the building was first completed. After a video of the excavation was shared, Matt showcased and discussed some of the artifacts that were found inside. The celebration continued with a special tribute video, with collected memories and messages of thanks to Lovell from students and alumni. 

Watch the full assembly celebration in the video below. And look for more coverage of Lovell and the new Academic and Performing Arts Center in the next edition of Views from the Hill, arriving in mailboxes shortly.
