The Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville Turns 20! -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog
The Harn in Gainesville turns 20 with free family celebrations planned all this weekend. This world class museum associated with the University of Florida has been growing as the Community and University has grown. In the past 20 years the museum has built large new wings, classrooms and gardens. The original 3,000 art objects have expanded to more than 7,300. At first, there were two curators; now, there are five responsible for the African, Asian, modern and contemporary art and photography permanent collections. And the building, already at 82,470-square-feet will get bigger with the 2012 opening of a three-story Asian art wing.
