Garage to Gallery
This 1925 automobile repair garage was transformed into a modern, contemporary art gallery. The building’s open floor plan and barrel vaulted ceiling with exposed steel trusses created a dramatic and idea setting to the display of this world class collection.

— Robert Duncan, Chairman Emeritus
A new polished concrete floor and exposed brick walls interspersed with floating art display walls maintain the integrity of the original building while offering expansive space for installation.
