National Academy Museum Galleries Closed for Renovation

The exhibition galleries and lobby of the National Academy Museum will be closed for renovations until September 2011.

Funded by generous bequests from Eleanor D. Popper, a former student of the School, and author Geoffrey Wagner in memory of his wife, Colleen Browning Wagner, an American realist painter and National Academician (NA), the renovations will modernize the existing galleries, provide visitors with more meaningful and educational experiences, and institute a new, dynamic environment for student and faculty review, discussion and exhibition.

A building committee, headed by architect Bruce Fowle, NA, of FXFOWLE Architects, Vice President of the Academy, will oversee the renovations, which will be designed by the architecture firm of Bade Stageberg Cox.
While under renovation, the Academy will continue to host the evening roundtable discussion, “The Review Panel,” and the School will maintain a full class schedule.
