Elkins Hall features Ameen watercolors

Watercolors by Lula Ameen, the late namesake of the Ameen Art Gallery at Nicholls State University, now adorn the foyer of Elkins Hall, the university’s oldest building.

Donated to the Nicholls State University Foundation by Rubye Beal Fitzgerald – the mother of the watercolors’ late owner, Joe Frank Beal Jr. – the display memorializes both Ameen and Beal. The former received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Nicholls and subsequently taught watercolor at the university from 1972 to 1989. Beal was a 1977 graduate of the College of Education.
