Shrem Art Museum is a work of art itself

Steel girders are being hoisted in place at the future home of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis.

The $30 million project, which broke ground in March 2014, will feature an indoor/outdoor combination of spaces for creating and displaying art.

There will be 29,000 square feet of interior space under the roof, but the building will have a 50,000-square-foot “grand canopy” that will extend well beyond the exterior walls, a sort of curved veil that will simultaneously filter light above a big plaza area at the museum’s entrance, and also catch the eye of passing travelers on Interstate 80.
