The Harvard Art Museums are undergoing a major renovation and expansion of their physical facilities at 32 Quincy Street, originally built in 1927. The project is being designed by internationally renowned architect Renzo Piano. When completed in fall of 2014, the transformed museum will consolidate all three of Harvard’s art museums—the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler—on one site in a state-of-the-art complex housing new and expanded exhibition galleries, the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, classrooms, seminar rooms, a lecture hall, public education space, and visitor amenities. Central to the transformation is a new study center complex with study centers and seminar rooms where visitors will be able to view original works of art in personal, intimate settings for study, learning, inspiration, and enjoyment.
Philanthropic support is needed to help fund this major transformation. Named gift opportunities are available for interested donors. If you would like further information, please contact thomas_woodward [at] harvard [dot] edu (Thomas Woodward), Director of Development, at 617-384-7317.
