The Wall Street Journal reports that the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum will open a storefront space in Harlem next month while its main building on the Upper East Side undergoes a two-year renovation.
The museum has also planned exhibitions at the United Nations and on Governors Island.
“The key for us is really to keep the presence of Cooper-Hewitt alive during the renovation,” associate director Caroline Baumann told The Journal. “I don’t use the verb ‘to close.’ I really see these two years as an opportunity to educate people about our mission and to expand our circle, our audience.”
