American Folk Art Museum to leave 53rd Street Building July 9, 2011

In an announcement released earlier today, the American Folk Art Museum revealed that they will close their 53rd Street building on July 9, 2011. This news follows AFAM’s May decision to sell the Tod Williams Billie Tsien-designed building to the Museum of Modern Art. I hope to visit the 53rd Street museum one last time before the doors close, and I hope many of you will have the opportunity to also.

Moving forward, the museum will operate in their Lincoln Square branch, on Columbus Avenue between 65th and 66th Streets.
