EXPANDING OUR REACH
The Picture a Place Capital Campaign enjoyed significant success. The new public meeting space, a large part of which is free and open to the public, allows for more exhibits, programming, performance space, and community events, while also generating revenue and providing a unique option for conferences, corporate meetings, weddings, and parties.

The unified, accessible entrance now sees nearly 50,000 annual visitors through its doors. A beautiful outdoor, natural garden complements the city’s first ever LEED-certified “Green” building design, a design choice that promotes environmental sustainability and substantially cuts down on energy and utility costs.  Visitors can grab a bite to eat in the new bright, airy café and buy remembrances of their visit at the expanded gift shop.
