The Wadsworth Atheneum is one of the oldest art museums in the United States. The Wadsworth Atheneum has undergone a major renovation in recent years. Fall 2015 marks the completion of a $33 million renovation project that aims to renew the museum’s historic structures and will add 17 new gallery spaces—nearly 16,000 square feet of exhibition space—to the building’s existing footprint.
C&G Partners designed a new wayfinding system throughout the existing and new galleries for a unified visitor experience. A second phase of the project will add an interactive welcome center displaying information on upcoming exhibits, events and memberships.
