OMG! The Wadsworth Atheneum


Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum re-opened two weeks ago after a five year, $33 million renovation.
The museum also sports metal-neon-and-light-bulb "OMG" artwork above the entrance. 


All of the galleries are open for the first time in recent memory.
They have been reorganized and rehung.  Let's see some galleries over the next few days.

I like it all, but really the bit of pop art in the signage.

Oh good, I'm looking forward to it.

Birdman said...

Yes, what a wonderful, castle-like building. Has it always been a museum? Who designed? I'm sure these will be answered in the coming days.

It's magical - like something from Disneyworld. I shall look forward to see what's hanging around.
