Lovett Auditorium

Show Us How You Lovett

Murray State University, along with the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, is excited to announce the launch of our “Show Us How You Lovett” fundraising campaign for the benefit of Lovett Auditorium and the Murray State community for which this historic building serves.

During the campaign, donors have a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase naming rights to brand new seats within Lovett Auditorium’s "Trustees Hall", named after the Board of Trustees of the Murray State University Foundation, Inc. whose support helped make these renovations possible. A gift to the newly established fund for Lovett Auditorium includes a commemorative name-plate to be installed on the back of a new seat, whose location can be chosen by the donor in one of the five available sections located on the main floor of the auditorium. Seats will be named on a first-come first-served basis through our online campaign platform.

Located in the heart of the campus of Murray State University, just off Olive Boulevard and 15th Street, historic Lovett Auditorium is one of the four original structures on campus, since 1926. World-renowned performers, artists and speakers have graced the stage of Lovett Auditorium. With a seating capacity of approximately 2,500, Lovett has hosted thousands of events, attended by millions of people.

Lovett Auditorium has hosted top events and performances from Dave Matthews to The Yard Birds, David Letterman, and Conway Twitty, Bill Engvall, Ben Stein, Little Big Town, and others. Broadway Shows, symphony concerts, opera, dance recitals and nationally known speakers have also found a home at Lovett, along with countless thousands of graduates who have walked across its stage to receive their diplomas.
