Boston and Seattle have been working on new art museum buildings for several years, and the public and critical response to both structures has been quite positive. New York has a few well-regarded art museums of its own, and now it has one that is "new" in several senses of the word. Sitting cheek and jowl amidst the late-nineteenth century urban fabric of the Bowery, The New Museum of Contemporary Art's building was designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa. Visitors who might be unacquainted with this institution may wish to peruse the "About" section for its overview and for splendid details about their new home and its construction. Also, the "Learn" area of the site includes several audio features about the museum and their "Museum as Hub" site, which provides a way of learning about their "new model for curatorial practice and institutional collaboration."
