As reported, the wholesale remaking of Harvard’s central art-museum complex has begun. The accompanying photo gallery, begun in late January and since updated continuously, shows scaffolding erected on the Prescott Street side of the Fogg complex, giving construction workers access to the roof to remove stone balusters. Along Broadway, the loading dock (used to remove artworks for storage) was demolished, creating space to remove construction debris from the interior demolition. The windows are giving way to plywood, and the front entrance, on Quincy Street, has been blocked off.

Check back for regular visual updates on the work in progress.
