Just months before its much-anticipated opening, the architects of the Park Museum have announced a major change to the institution’s design.
In a press release issued today, chief architect Vadim Kobras confirmed that after extensive consultations with the Museum’s Board of Governors, alterations were made to the original plans to allow for space for a small art gallery. The gallery will be attached to the small building that will house the library’s collection of books, manuscripts, and musical scores.
“We would like to thank the Board of Governors for their patience and support in allowing us time to design an appropriate space in which to showcase the art of The Park,” Kobras’s statement said.
A spokesAnimal for the Board of Governors confirmed that the museum will soon be seeking a full-time curator for the small gallery. In the meantime, the spokesAnimal said, members of the museum’s board will be touring The Park’s galleries, as well as the 2014 Park Art Walk (PAW) in search of items for the opening exhibit.
