Making a Modern Classic: Frank Gehry's Master Plan for the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Making a Modern Classic, on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art through September 1, offers an exclusive first look at the comprehensive plan that Frank Gehry has created for the renovation and expansion of Philadelphia Museum of Art's home on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Gehry's addition to the Philadelphia Museum of Art focuses on the transformation of the interior of the main building through the renovation of beloved spaces like the Great Stair Hall: dramatic improvements to how visitors will enter and move through the museum.

In addition, the plans also call for a new Education Center and the creation of a substantial amount of new space dedicated to the display of new works of art.
