The Museum has received a donation of $500,000 from TurningPoint Foundation of Dallas, Texas, in support of a new education mezzanine. The museum will recognize the foundation’s generosity by designating the education mezzanine as the “Byrne Education Loft,” a supporting area to the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery.
Two programming spaces will comprise the new Byrne Education Loft, filled with rich and diverse learning opportunities. The loft will be established with a modular design to provide flexibility for a variety of programming offered by the museum. Signature public programs, workshops, school tours and teacher training will find a new life in a very inspiring space. High-tech and hands-on opportunities will fuel the creativity of visitors to the loft as they explore experiences amidst the treasures on display in the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery.
