LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Art Museum of Greater Lafayette is returning to their normal hours for the first time since March of 2020. To celebrate, they're opening with a new exhibit, and it comes with a few surprises.
"We cut a wall in half, we moved walls," said gift shop manager LaDonna Vohar.
The main gallery of the museum has had a major face lift. Walls have been moved to open up the room. In the center of the first room of the main gallery, a wall corner has been placed as a unique way to section off other art pieces.
That's the other thing: for the first time, the main gallery is showcasing all museum owned pieces, the best of 110 years worth.
The vision came from in-term curator Lorie Aimek, who had wanted this project for years. Together with Vohar and current curator Andrea Klutzke, the trio spent months building the new exhibit.
"We worked hard. We spent a lot of hours making this happen, but it was worth every minute of it," Vohar said. "Every time I walk in it's like, I'm so overwhelmed because it's so wonderful and different."
The museum is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
