Fodor's Review

In 2014, the combined collections of the Busch-Reisinger and Fogg museums (which closed in 2008) and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum (which closed in 2013) will be represented under one roof with the umbrella name Harvard Art Museums. Barring any possible delays, Harvard Art Museums are slated to open in late 2014, housed in a new facility designed by architect Renzo Piano. Highlights include American and European paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the Fogg Museum; works by German expressionists, materials related to the Bauhaus, and postwar contemporary art from German-speaking Europe from the Busch-Reisinger Museum. The collection will also include ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, Chinese jades, and Islamic ceramics from the Sackler Museum.
