In 2008, mindful of its 2013 Centennial, the Gallery initiated a master planning process for its grounds that would extend its mission, “Connecting People with Art”, to include great works of art both inside the building and out. The new plan included the removal of sections of the University and Goodman street fence line in order to extend a clear message of welcome to the community. The limestone amphitheatre near the Goodman/University corner provides new performance and events space. Even the parking areas have been designed to enhance visitors’ aesthetic experience from the moment they arrive on the grounds. Read more on the planning process
