Preparing for Expansion, Chazen Temporarily Closes Some Galleries and Rooms
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison, Wisconsin, October 21, 2010—The south entrance to the Chazen Museum of Art (from University Avenue) is now closed for construction and landscaping of the plaza. The north entrance remains open and the museum continues to operate regular public hours. The north entrance may be reached from Park Street via the Humanities courtyard, or from State Street, Lake Street, and Library Mall via the open section of the East Campus Mall. Wheelchair access is available at the north entrance via Park Street and the Humanities Building courtyard, or from Library Mall. The bus stop on University Avenue is still in service (visit cityofmadison.com/metro for routes and maps). Visitors disembarking at this stop will need to walk to Park Street and go through the Humanities courtyard to reach the north entrance.
The south entrance is expected to remain closed
until June 2011 as Findorff reconstructs and landscapes the area in front of both the Elvehjem Building and the new building. Richard Artschwager’s Generations sculpture installation will remain in its current location and be protected during the plaza work.
In addition to the south entrance, there are several gallery and room closures inside the museum:
