Show Us How You Lovett

Murray State University, along with the College of Humanities and Fine Art has launched the “Show Us How You Lovett” fundraising campaign for the benefit of Lovett Auditorium and the Murray State community for which this historic building serves.

Add your name to a seat in Lovett Auditorium

From All Campus Sing and classes on the steps to Campus Lights and other onstage performances from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, everyone has memories of Lovett Auditorium from their time at Murray State.

You have a 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 backrest of the new seat.

Lovett seating

New seats were installed during the renovation project. The new seats are larger and configured differently with three fewer rows in each section. Originally, the main hall contained 1,769 seats; with this new seating, the seating capacity was slightly reduced to 1,431. 244 of the cast-iron “M” emblems mounted on the original seats have been salvaged, refurbished and mounted onto the new seats. 


All renovated seats in Lovett

*Please note that this campaign is for seat naming rights only. All events held in Lovett Auditorium will continue to be first-come, first-served unless otherwise noted. Purchasing naming rights for a seat will not guarantee that seat for events held at Lovett Auditorium when the building reopens. Your named seat may or may not be available for you for events.  Seating is determined by the group organizing each event and is usually a first-come first served basis. For all others, please arrive early and claim your seats prior to the start of an event.
