The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery — the country’s first art museum — is reopening after a two-year, $30 million renovation. While visitors to the restored gallery may marvel at massive new exhibitions by artists Maya Lin, Tara Donovan and others, the backstory of this 150 year-old facility’s facelift is equally as eye-popping. From contractors’ discovery of Civil War-era relics, to architectural surprises and structural challenges that spurred innovation, the Renwick’s overhaul provides a technical and creative blueprint for museums considering similar changes in the future. We explore the new Renwick and hear the story behind its rejuvenation.
