Pop Up Museum

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the country’s finest museums. Since we live nearby, I get to visit often. When I stopped by to see the current special exhibition and to see the model for Frank Gehry’s $150 million museum expansion, I spotted the PMA’s clever way to cover the construction work.

Throughout the  building and renovation project, the museum plans to transform the ugly fencing into an outdoor gallery. Over the three year-long construction period they plan to display copies of some of the most popular works inside. With the institution’s enormous collection, I think that they will be able to cover the 100 meters of plywood fencing with no problem.
