Museum for African Art
Museum Mile will get a new addition in 2012, when the reworked Museum for African Art opens to the public in a new location on East 110th Street and Fifth Avenue. Originally scheduled to debut this year, the institution—which showcases traditional and contemporary African art—recently pushed back its launch date by a year in order to raise more money for the project. This undertaking has been a long time coming: Since its founding in 1984, the MAA has occupied a few neighborhoods (including the Upper East Side, Soho and Long Island City) before finally breaking ground in Harlem in 2007. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the 90,000-square-foot building will include a new theater and restaurant, a spiral staircase and a terrace on the roof.
