Situated in an emerging center of cultural venues and commercial activity, the existing museum was built in 1978 on the northeast boundary of the historic Old Town district. The re-imagined site design reorients the museum’s main entrance and expands sculpture gardens and grounds to accommodate a growing collection of over 50 significant works of sculpture and a variety of outdoor history exhibits. The Phase I museum design concept treats major program components like sculptural elements surrounding a voluminous light-filled lobby. A variety of materials, including local stone, metal, plaster, glass and wood reinforce the design concept and contribute to the institution’s fresh new identity.
A second phase is currently underway and will include a complete renovation of the museum’s history gallery and a new photo archives space.
