Art Museum Milestone

Harvard's Fogg Art Museum crane disassembled

The renovation of the Fogg Art Museum building into the new Harvard Art Museums reached a milestone this morning: construction crews disassembled the crane that has been used during creation of the new superstructure and the glass "bell" atop the new space and the existing Fogg building's shell. These views were taken Friday morning, December 14, looking north up Prescott Street.

For earlier construction views, see this portfolio.

Renderings of the completed project, now expected to open in 2014, appear here.
