Campus expansion plans, being designed by Rotterdam-based Neutelings Riedijk Architects, include adding 35,000 to 50,000 more square feet of space, expanding the gallery space by 30 percent, and creating a spectacular new entrance off of Eden Park Drive.

Betsky would also like to move the museum's offices to the former Art Academy space, leaving more room inside the museum for the celebration of art.
