Tulane University Announced the Donation of a Large Painting

L to R: Anne S. Robinson – Boh Professor and Chair of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Nick Altiero – Dean of Science and Engineering, Miriam John – E ’72, SSE Board of Advisors & CBE Board member, and Adam Hall – Artist New Orleans painter and Tulane Alumnus in front of “Resolve” hanging in Donna and Paul Flower Hall for Research and Innovation.

Tulane University announced the donation of a large painting by New Orleans artist and Tulane alumni, Adam Hall. The painting, “Resolve”, depicts Audubon Park’s “Tree of Life,” a mighty live oak that has stood in the park for hundreds of years. Given by an anonymous donor, the painting now hangs in the atrium of The Donna and Paul Flower Hall for Research and Innovation, a science and engineering hub constructed on the uptown campus in 2012.

“Resolve” is intended to symbolize strength, resilience and growth, qualities which those who enter Flower Hall strive for. It is intended to remind the viewer that Flower Hall is place for new ideas to grow. Southern live oaks are an integral part of Tulane University’s landscape and heritage. In fact the site for Flower Hall was adjusted to preserve the huge live oak that sits in its front courtyard.

The artist, Adam Hall, has had a longstanding relationship with faculty in the Tulane Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department, starting from the time that he was a freshman studying art and history in 2001. The painting was installed on Saturday, February 26, in a ceremony attended by School of Science and Engineering Dean, Nicholas Altiero, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) Department Chair, Anne Robinson, CBE students and Advisory Board members.
