Museum for African Art to Wait Even Longer for New Home

New, 2 comments

The Robert A.M. Stern-designed Museum for African Art, the museum topped by condos at Fifth Avenue and 110th Street, was scheduled to open in April 2011. After failing to meet its 2009 completion date, that is. Now, the museum team tells Artinfo, that will be pushed back at least five more months, to a new opening date a year from now. The museum's director doesn't want to blame anyone, but says the developers are "months behind schedule" in their work on the building core and shell. To tide us over, Artinfo has a lobby construction shot and rendering. The museum itself, without a permanent home since 1984, probably doesn't even notice these delays anymore.
