description

This picture displays the Axelson Grand Lobby. It is marked by the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture and is named in honor of Frances Roderick Axelson and Robert Axelson, who gave generously to the restoration of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre. Frances is a former Board Chair of the El Paso Community Foundation. Robert is a former member of the Investment Advisory Committee of the Community Foundation. The fundraising campaign of the foundation saved the theater from demolition in 1986.
