2018 Reinstallation

Carousel Slides

Exciting things are in the works at the High! We’re beginning the first major reinstallation and renovation of the collection galleries since the High’s transformative expansion in 2005. The Museum will remain open during the project, but all permanent collection galleries are closed for renovation. We will debut the new presentations of our gallery spaces in October 2018.

2018 Reinstallation Goals:

  1. Showcase our strengths
  2. Reimagine how the collections relate to their gallery spaces
  3. Improve wayfinding and flow
  4. Mitigate light exposure and make sure our artworks are properly cared for
  5. Display artworks that are relevant to our communities



Concurrent with the collection reinstallation, the Museum will double the footprint and complete a total redesign of the Greene Family Learning Gallery.

Check out our reinstallation announcement press release and our reinstallation unveiling press release for more information. For periodic updates on our reinstallation progress, visit our blog.
