In May 2010, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts opened a modern glass-and-limestone expansion to its stately 1936 building. The inviting new wing, designed by London architect Rick Mather, adds 50% more gallery space to the institution, as well as ample room for the shop, library, and restaurants. In addition to its much-beloved clutch of seven Fabergé eggs, the VMFA is home to a sizable and eclectic permanent collection: a trove of Art Deco and Art Nouveau works, 19th-century American silver and furniture, French Impressionism, Indian and Himalayan art, as well as paintings and works on paper by European and American masters.
