The construction of the new building of Palmer Museum has begun. Located at Penn State, USA, and scheduled to open in the fall of 2023, the new 6600 square meters complex will expand nearly double the space of the current gallery to host the growing collection of more than 10,000 pieces. The design features a series of pavilions, educational areas, and courtyards to boost accessibility to the art collections for students, staff, and the public. The construction aligns with the 50th anniversary of the museum along with a multitude of events, including the exhibition of Allied Works’ pieces of the design process for the new Palmer Museum.
