One of the nation’s most celebrated art museums has announced that it will unveil its recently renovated galleries dedicated to the collection of Marion and Henry Bloch.
In early 2017, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, will celebrate and unveil its recently renovated Bloch Galleries, which hold nearly 30 Impressionist masterpieces by — among others — Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
Via the museum, “The 2017 re-opening of the Bloch Galleries in the Museum’s original 1933 Beaux-Arts building also coincides with the tenth anniversary of the Bloch Building, an addition designed by architect Steven Holl that greatly expanded the Museum’s footprint. Since the 2007 expansion, the Museum has enjoyed a 42% increase in visitation, also encouraged by their nearly fifteen-year free admission policy.”
