As we continue our comprehensive renovation of the Museum’s Main Building, we have started to reopen new and exciting spaces. We recently inaugurated our first ever temporary exhibition space, the East Building Gallery, and we have reactivated our outdoor space with exhibitions and public programs on Audubon Terrace.
THE EAST BUILDING GALLERY:
A recently inaugurated 3,000-square-foot gallery space where thematic and collections-based exhibitions will be presented in fresh ways. We are planning exhibitions that will draw from our immensely rich collections that cover some 4,000 years of the art and culture of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America. Exhibitions dedicated to contemporary Hispanic and Latin American artists, art which pulsates with diverse and creative narratives, will also be a major focus.
NEW EXHIBITION COMING IN FEBRUARY 17th, 2022 For information about the current exhibition please click here
AUDUBON TERRACE. OUTDOOR EXHIBITION SPACE:
This outdoor area allows us to connect directly with our community by creating a place for vibrant and inclusive experiences as well as allowing us to present outdoor exhibitions, Hispanic and Latin American music performances, and workshops for children.
Proof of vaccination required. Face masks are required for all visitors aged 2 or above; social distancing is required and enforced. for more information click here
Our vision for the future centers on offering new and stimulating spaces and programs that maximize the potential of our invaluable resources, afford us to serve our community and increase our ability to welcome projects and collaboration with local and international partners.
A recent assessment of the landmark buildings in 2019 with Selldorf Architects and Beyer Blinder Belle Architects resulted in a Master Plan of the entire campus to be implemented in phases.
From 2009 to 2015, capital projects focused on sealing the envelop of the buildings, including the renovation of the Sorolla Gallery building, the restoration of the limestone façades, and the replacement of the Main Building roof.
The next phases will focus on reopening the Main Court and Sorolla Gallery, including wheel-chair accessibility; the creation of a state-of-the art conservation studio; and the complete renovation and restoration of the East Building with a welcoming entrance featuring rotating art installations, modernized galleries for permanent and special exhibitions, dedicated spaces for education and outreach programs.
