The Connections Campaign is an expansion and renovation project that will greatly enhance visitors’ experiences with art, and with each other. The plans include the central Mark Rothko pavilion that connects the two buildings, added gallery space, increased capacity for education and public programs, enhanced amenities, and improved way finding. The hope is to break ground in 2018.
