Hill’s sendoff offers preview

A Hill Auditorium patron tries out one of the venue’s new chairs at Hill’s send-off celebration April 30. When the building reopens in 18 months, the chairs will be an inch wider, with padded seats and contoured wooden backs. The original color scheme and lighting are among many elements to be restored in the $38.6 million restoration. (Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services)
