After six years, the Harvard Art Museums will reopen to the public on Nov. 16. The much-anticipated renovation and restoration has united the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum under one spectacular glass roof designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano.
Light is a key element of the new design, as is an emphasis on slowing down visitors and connecting them with beautiful works of art in dynamic new ways. The 204,000-square-foot home of the University’s imposing collection includes an expanded art-study center where visitors can request works for examination by appointment, new University galleries where students and faculty will work with curators on projects, and revamped and expanded galleries where fresh juxtapositions of artworks create crosscurrents and connections between collections.
