Construction at the Atheneum
The Wadsworth Atheneum's renovations are supposed to be finished this summer. Most of the work has been the thankless task of fixing the roof . . . lots of money, entirely necessary, but no more space and no new features. The museum has been open during renovations, but I am sure attendance has been hurt by the construction barriers that obscure the building.
The lead exhibition today is Monet's water lilies. I didn't go in today. I will have to see it later.
Nathan Hale's statue is bravely standing amidst the construction materials. I showed him before here and here.
