A multi-million dollar renovation at the National Gallery of Art will close parts of the gallery for three years.
The $68 million renovation will mean more art galleries and a rooftop sculpture garden overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue. The National Gallery of Art will also get more than 12,000 feet of new exhibition space.
Visitors should note: modern art galleries will close between July and December, with construction set to begin in January.
New galleries in two towers may highlight Mark Rothko and other works from the museum's collection.
Federal funds will pay for more than half of the renovations, while private donors are contributing $30 million dollars.
