Construction continues to move ahead smoothly. Most of the work is taking place in the rear of the building as the artist prepare to move out of the main building for the summer.
With the front entry open again, and the new elevator operating, construction focus has shifted to the back of the building where the old West Wing has been demolished, the site excavated, and work has begun on footings and foundations.
Artists and visitors are able to watch progress from the rear stairwells. The foundations will be poured in five stages. Here is a view of the rear corner with some hefty footings filled with steel rebar.
The gallery hums with the bustling of materials and machinery this season as we prepare to enter the next phase of our renovation project. Although it feels like the dust just settled a few short years ago on construction in the current gallery space, we are thrilled to vision programs for the future. In this exciting time of change, we hope you will enjoy the last events in our current gallery space on the 2nd floor.
