Columbus Museum of Art Breaks Ground on New Wing

. August 23, 2013

The Columbus Museum of Art has broken ground on it’s new wing. Construction of the new wing marks the third and final phase of the Museum’s Art Matters renovation and expansion project.

The $37.6 million project encompasses major renovations to the Ross Wing and lobby area the Museum added in 1974 and the construction of a new wing. These changes will result in a unique meeting and special event complex, as well as new Gallery spaces to showcase the Museum’s permanent collection and expanded space for high-profile traveling exhibitions.

Columbus-based architecture firm DesignGroup led by award-winning architect Michael Bongiorno, a graduate of the prestigious Pratt Institute School of Architecture, is spearheading the project. Recognized for the talent, experience, and innovation applied to successful local and regional urban projects, Bongiorno specializes in the design of civic facilities, cultural destinations, and residential mixed-use communities. His recent projects include the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington, the Columbus West Family Health Center, and Goodwill Columbus’ Headquarters.
