Not unlike the man on the right, we’ve been sitting around, waiting for the Rodin Museum to open back up, wondering what to do with ourselves. But not to be overshadowed by its new neighbor, the Rodin will once again be swinging open its doors.
Art Daily took an inside look at the renovations, and they seemed pretty impressed:
In the galleries of the Museum, [visitors] will encounter an entirely new presentation of the collection. The reinstallation includes 90 works in a variety of materials—bronze, marble, terracotta, and plaster—that survey the genesis and development of Rodin’s monumental The Gates of Hell, a project inspired by Dante’s Inferno that consumed the artist for nearly four decades, from 1880 until his death in 1917. Visitors will be able to learn more about Rodin’s work through new interpretive tools, including a new mobile app, and new public programs such as family activities and performances
The Rodin will reopen on July 13th, and will be open to the public from 10 AM until 5 PM Wednesday through Monday. It will be closed on Tuesdays.
