Where Your Support Will Go
One place to see the success of our campaign is to visit our gleaming Chryler Museum Glass Studio. In a three-part campaign spread over three years, building and launching the Studio was job No. 1.
For more details on how we're expanding our building and bettering the visitor experience, click here. For a behind-the-scenes look at what's going on behind our closed doors, bookmark our expansion and renovation update blog.
Major construction on the Museum is well underway. The art is safely packed, demolition is complete and rebuilding has begun. When this project is finished, the Chrysler will have:
- added 8,000 square feet of new galleries and a state-of-the-art warehouse for collection storage
- revamped every gallery and added a new cafe complete with garden dining
- funded five endowments: four curators and the Glass Studio manager
We appreciate the deep civic pride in the quality of our Museum, and thanks to people like you, we will be better than ever when we reopen in 2014.
