Palo Alto Art Center will soon have a new look

Renovations to center to be complete by next summer

A new children's wing, gallery shop, classrooms and better exhibition space at the Palo Alto Art Center got one shovelful of dirt closer to completion when Palo Alto Mayor Sid Espinosa "broke ground" on the $7.9 million project Saturday (July 16).

Renovations to the art center are expected to be complete by summer 2012. During the yearlong construction project, the center's staff will continue to offer programs, demonstrations and classes through the Art Center's Art Truck.

The renovations will double the classroom space, from two to four, and add a courtyard where summer programs can be held. Also part of the plans are a new, more welcoming entrance, sustainable landscaping and wheelchair accessibility.

Renderings are available at the city's website.
