Muskegon Museum of Art selects Ann Beha Architects for renovation and expansion project

The Muskegon Museum of Art has selected Boston-based Ann Beha Architects (ABA) to lead its first expansion project in 30 years. Founded in 1912, the Muskegon Museum of Art holds a significant collection of American and European artworks, sculpture, and studio glass. The expansion project is driven by a renewed vision for exhibitions programming, collections growth, and community outreach. As museum Executive Director Kirk Hallman notes, “with current exhibition space and rotating the permanent collection twice annually, it would take over 40 years to show the entire collection.” Selected from a field of 33 candidates, ABA will design new classrooms, visitor service areas, and collections spaces to meet the museum’s ambition for growth and stewardship. A leader in museum design, ABA has completed award-winning buildings for the Shelburne Museum, the Currier Museum of Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art
