The new facility for the Harvard Art Museums—comprising the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum—was designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop; it opens to the public on November 16, 2014. The renovation and expansion of the 32 Quincy Street building brings the three museums and their collections together under one roof for the first time. The project is designed to create new resources for study, scholarship, teaching, conservation, and exhibition—and brings the public into one of the world’s great institutions for arts scholarship and research.
