We at the Woodson Art Museum don’t like barriers. Let me clarify. Our director, Kathy Foley doesn’t like barriers. Me, I love a good barrier. I’m enthralled by partitions, have a slight crush on hedgerows, and I adore a good blockade. It’s a good thing that I don’t call the shots here. If I did, the results of our current construction project probably would have the Museum looking like the giant garden maze in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

Once again, the Woodson is partnering with local design/build firm The Samuels Group. They continue to be a receptive partner, listening to our ideas, creating appropriate plans, and beginning renovation work with enthusiasm and a keen attention to detail.
During the next few months, visitors will encounter some detours en route to the galleries and a few barriers in front of familiar spaces. Rest assured that good work is happening behind those walls and that most of the barriers are only temporary. We’re confident the end result will improve your Woodson Art Museum experience “forever, and ever, and ever.”
