Project Description

Museum Renovation
Harrisburg, PA

A former bank building serves as the entrance lobby to the new museum, which will also have space for educational and community related events.  The facade compliments the color and proportion of the existing building while providing a civic scale to the block.  Satisfying the need for more resources, the addition provides space for a large traveling gallery, an education center, staff offices and art loading and receiving.  The new museum is being constructed according to standards set forth by the American Alliance of Museums, which will allow SAM to borrow exhibitions and artwork of national significance.


“I must tell you that as we install the next exhibition, which includes Beth Galston’s sculptural environments, she commented each day that the space is magical.”
