Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to undergo massive expansion

RICHMOND, Va. -- Whittled down from dozens of proposals after an RFP last year, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts expects to make public later this month its chosen architect for a massive new expansion. The state-owned museum said this week it will announce the winning architectural proposal by June 30 for a $190 million project that would increase its space from 650,000 square feet to nearly 800,000 square feet.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that VMFA would be unveiling the design of its planned expansion later this month. It will only be announcing the architect of the project. The museum also recently created and hired a photography curator.
