A major renovation of the Renwick Gallery is now in the design phase. The lead architects are Westlake Reed Leskosky, based in Cleveland with offices in Washington, D.C. This project includes completely renewed infrastructure, enhanced historic features and other upgrades that will make the National Historic Landmark building a 21st-century destination attraction. The renovation will begin in early 2014 with plans to reopen the building in 2016. The Renwick Gallery building will be closed to the public beginning December 9, 2013.
