NYC design museum begins $54 million redesign
NEW YORK (AP) - New York City’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum is announcing that it has raised $54 million to renovate its Upper East Side mansion.
The museum says the redesign will allow it to enhance its facilities for exhibitions and educational programs.
Cooper-Hewitt is celebrating the completion of its capital campaign at a reception Wednesday.
The museum also announced it has completed the renovation of two townhouses that house administrative offices as well as its National Design Library and its master’s program in the history of decorative arts and design.
Cooper-Hewitt is part of the Smithsonian Institution. It is the only museum in the nation devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary design.
