Over the last decade, the Pulitzer has grown and evolved as an institution, expanding and diversifying our program through… a range of partnerships, community engagement, and scholarly inquiry. We are pleased to announce today an expansion project that will transform the lower level of our Tadao Ando-designed building into new public spaces for exhibitions, programs, and artist-driven activities. The expansion will maximize space in our building, while maintaining the intimate experience of art that our audiences have come to know and appreciate. Beginning this fall, the construction is a natural next step for us as we look to the future and build upon our mission to push the boundaries of the traditional arts encounter.
In conjunction with the expansion, we also announce a formal change in our institutional name to Pulitzer Arts Foundation. The renaming emphasizes arts to affirm our commitment to the presentation of art in new and compelling ways.
Beginning in late August, the Pulitzer will close temporarily for construction and will reopen in May 2015 with a new schedule of concurrent exhibitions. Follow the construction progress on our new website, launching in August 2014.
