Virginia Museum of Fine Arts: A work in progress

I visited the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts a couple of weeks and ago and took some photos. I am really excited by the direction that the museum is headed in. It has just reopened many of its galleries, along with a new wing containing a new atrium, two restaurants, a store and more galleries. Other parts of the museum and its galleries are still undergoing renovation and expansion. There is already plenty to see and enjoy, but when this expansion plan is complete, Richmond and Virginia as a whole will have a world-class art museum.
