The Harvard Art Museums—comprising the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum—reopened a new Renzo Piano Building Workshop-designed facility to the public on November 16, 2014. The renovation and expansion of the museums' landmark building at 32 Quincy Street in Cambridge unite the three museums and their collections together under one roof for the ﬁrst time, inviting students, faculty, scholars, and the public into one of the world's great institutions for art scholarship and research. In addition to the landmark building, the Harvard Art Museums includes three additional properties across Cambridge and Somerville, MA.
The Harvard Art Museums advance knowledge about and appreciation of art and art museums. The museums are committed to preserving, documenting, presenting, interpreting, and strengthening the collections and resources in their care. The Harvard Art Museums bring to light the intrinsic power of art and promote critical looking and thinking for students, faculty, and the public. Through research, teaching, professional training, and public education, the museums encourage the close study of original works of art, enhance access to the collections, support the production of original scholarship, and foster university-wide collaboration across disciplines.
