The Drawing Center Reopens; Lighting Design Talk

SOHO?After a year-long renovation, the Drawing Center officially reopened yesterday. The institute was supposed to reopen last week, but Hurricane Sandy delayed the event. WXY Architecture & Urban Design lead the $10 million makeover, which gives the museum twice the gallery space and an upgraded facade. The Times describes the design as "solid, attractive, and conventional." [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
