Features and Benefits

  • 28,000 SF were added to allow for the addition of an art reference library on the second floor.
  • Two of the historic ballrooms, catering kitchen and office space for the museum staff were also renovated.
  • Renovations also feature a glass four-story “pleat” on the south exterior to provide extensive natural light to a new four-story atrium carved out of the existing floors of the building.
  • A new tunnel constructed under the plaza provides access between the existing and the renovated wings.
