Inscription.  The Chemistry Building (1929) was designed by S. C. P. Vosper, using classical design proportions and details. It was extended to the east in 1981 and 1988. The ornamentation uses a variety of color schemes in tile patterns inspired from the art of the Mexican Americans, and includes patterns of animal heads, skulls, bones and fossils. The main entrance has a monumental stair leading to pedimented doorways. The entry ceiling has intricate painted gold grillwork against a background of dark panels with complementary lighting fixtures.
