Harvard art is on the move
When the doors of the Fogg Museum in Cambridge close to the public on June 30, they won’t open again until 2013.
But the five-year sabbatical is for a good cause — the Harvard museum will undergo structural renovations that are 50 years overdue. Among the highest priorities: the air-conditioning and plumbing, in addition to an electrical system that pre-dates the FDR administration.
The plan also includes a bigger and longer-range goal — to add a complementary arts complex across the Charles River in Allston.
