Harvard Fogg Museum

Harvard Art Museums, 485 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138     617-495-9400

As an institution, we have experienced a great deal of change in the last three years: We closed our building on Quincy Street for a major renovation and expansion, moved most of our collection and staff to an off-site location, and reinstalled the Arthur M. Sackler Museum with works of art from the collections of all three of our museums. A vast amount of planning and strategic thinking went into each of those projects.

Now that we’ve caught our breath, we’re looking again toward the future. Our focus is on upcoming temporary exhibitions at the Sackler, as well as preparations for the eventual opening of our new facility across the street.
