After six years and a $90 million renovation, the Museum of Arts and Design opened the doors of its new home on Saturday, Sept. 27. The museum's new location, at 2 Columbus Circle, includes 14,000 square feet of gallery space, a 155-seat theater, new education facilities and artist workspace. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg joined a group of elected officials to cut the ribbon at the renovated museum, calling it "a destination for audiences from around the corner and around the world, linking the midtown, Upper West Side and Clinton cultural corridors."
