Integral to Harvard University and the wider community, the Harvard Art Museums serve as a resource for students, scholars, and the public. The Fogg Museum collection comprises Western art from the Middle Ages to the present; the Busch-Reisinger Museum is dedicated to the study of art from the German-speaking countries of central and northern Europe, and is the only one of its kind in North America; and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum is focused on Asian, ancient, and Islamic and later Indian art. In June 2008 the historic building at 32 Quincy Street, formerly the home of the Fogg and Busch-Reisinger museums, closed for a major renovation and expansion project. In order for the Harvard Art Museums to conduct the final phases of the project, including the installation of the galleries in the new facility, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum's galleries at 485 Broadway closed on June 1, 2013. When complete in the fall of 2014, the project will unite our three museums in a single state-of-the-art facility designed by architect Renzo Piano. See our calendar for programs and events offered in the lecture hall of the current Arthur M. Sackler Museum at 485 Broadway and at a number of other campus venues.
