HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College officials have released their plans for an upcoming $50 million renovation of the Hanover school’s Hood Museum of Art.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1Pne9hh ) Dartmouth’s application for a review of the East Wheelock Street site was unanimously approved by the Hanover Planning Board on Jan. 5.

Administrators say the three-year project will enhance the museum and give it a greater presence at its current location.

The work includes a 40 percent increase in gallery space, an “object-based” learning center for students and an expanded facade on East Wheelock Street.

Director John Stomberg says the museum’s proposed facade will provide a “grand entrance” that will be seen as more inviting.



Construction is set to begin in August and continue through December 2018.
