After almost two years and $20 million in external support, GMOA’s Phase II expansion and renovation project, designed by Gluckman Mayner Architects of New York and executed in a collaborative effort with Stanley Beaman & Sears Architects of Atlanta, has resulted in 16,000 square feet of new galleries, an outdoor sculpture garden, an expanded lobby and additional storage space. The new gallery space will accommodate continuous viewing of the museum’s permanent collection in the areas of early Italian Renaissance painting, 19th- and 20th-century American art, folk art and decorative arts. Special exhibitions will be on view in the C.L. Morehead Jr. Wing.
