Metroblogging the DIA: The Old and the New

Today, visitors have a choice in beginning their DIA experience. Visitors entering from the original Woodward entrance are led up the steps by red carpet and greeted by the timeless grandeur of the Great Hall. In addition, visitors are stunned by the thousands of tiny sparkling mirrors hanging from the ceiling. Visitors entering through the new entrance on Farnsworth will experience a modern reception. The gift shop has been relocated to this new part of the building. It has been expanded to boast a greater selection of items, including unique holiday cards. For those of you starting holiday shopping, the shop remains open to the general public and museum goers alike. The old and the new have been incorporated in an aesthetically pleasing manner where portions of the old building façade make up new walls in the renovated space.
