SELLDORF ARCHITECTS TO REVITALIZE SMITHSONIAN AMERICAN ART MUSEUM KEY GALLERIES AND PUBLIC SPACES
We are thrilled to announce that The Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) has engaged Selldorf Architects to revitalize its permanent collection galleries and renew key public spaces, marking the first comprehensive reinstallation of the museum’s exhibition and interpretation spaces since 2006 when its National Historic Landmark building was last renovated. Originally designed between 1836 and 1867 for the U.S. Patent Office, the building was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution in 1952 to serve as a museum. Renamed the Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture in 2006, SAAM shares the building with the National Portrait Gallery.
