A nine-minute video about the restoration of murals at Ilfeld Auditorium will be on view at the Las Vegas City Museum through the end of October.

The video can be seen in the museum’s main gallery. The murals, painted by Brooks Willis, were created as part of the New Deal-era programs that put artists and craftspeople to work during the Great Depression of the 1930s. The City Museum is showing the video in connection with the New Deal 75th Anniversary Celebration.

The video, which was produced by Miriam Langer and Dustin Bingham, includes footage of the restoration.

The murals are on display in the lobby at Ilfeld Auditorium on the NMHU campus. There is an informative text panel near the video screen.
