Harvard Art Museum / Big
A big entry sign…and big gallery titles…leading to a bigger Harvard Art Museum.
The Harvard Art Museum is in the midst of a “transformation” that will bring its three separate museums—the Fogg, the Busch-Reisinger, and the Sackler—together in a renovated and expanded building on Quincy Street.
The project (designed by Piano, naturally: his name seems to be on every other museum’s expansion), is scheduled to open in 2013. In the meantime, the Sackler offers Re-View, a survey of the three museums’ collections. It’s well worth a visit if you’re in the Harvard Square neighborhood. After, you can take a stroll down the street and stop in here for a scoop of the Milk Chocolate Gianduia.
