Awash in natural light and surrounded by the collections of the three Harvard Art Museums, the renovated and revitalized Calderwood Courtyard stands ready to once again serve as the heart of the museums when they reopen on Nov. 16.
In preparation for its reopening this fall, the Harvard Art Museums will create a student advisory board composed of graduate and undergraduate students to serve as its connection to the student body.
The reconstructed building, which expands total gallery space to 43,000 square feet, will include six levels of public space, a new glass roof, and new resources and spaces for teaching, exhibition, and research.
A new exhibit in the Science Center showcases human body parts and historical objects related to the science of dissection and anatomy.
James Voorhies, who is an art historian, writer, and curator, will be responsible for developing and presenting exhibits and public programs at the Center.
Heather P. Campion, the first woman to serve in this position, will continue the history of collaboration between the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and the Institute of Politics. She plans to take steps to make the Library more hands-on and high-tech.
