New Venue Gets Raves

The brand-new American Folk Art Museum has only been open for a couple weeks, but it's already getting big raves. Time magazine's "Best of 2001" issue ranks the venue at number four in its list of the best design of the year ("It's a jewel-box museum that's a jewel in itself"). And New York Times architecture critic Herbert Muschamp raved, "The design delves deeply into the meaning of continuity: the regeneration of streets and cities; the persistence and mingling of multiple memories in the changing polyglot metropolis; and the capacity of art to transcend cultural categories even as it helps define them." (He really likes it.)
