NEW YORK, NY.- The unveiling of a stunning all glass and aluminum pavilion and state-of-the-art curatorial center will take place tomorrow, August 13, 2008. Remarks by city public officials, Susan Henshaw Jones, the Museum’s President and Director, James G. Dinan, Chairman of the Board, and architect James S. Polshek will begin at 10 a.m.

The ribbon-cutting marks the completion of the $28 million Phase I of the Museum’s modernization project, with major funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Renovations include a three-level addition, one level of which is the spectacular 3,000 sq. ft. James G. Dinan and Elizabeth R. Miller Gallery.

The Museum of the City of New York's name says it all. Their unique mandate – to explore the past, present, and future of New York City and celebrate its heritage of diversity, opportunity, and perpetual transformation – enables the museum to present a variety of exhibitions, public programs, and publications, all investigating what gives New York its singular character.

In this year alone, the museum presented exhibitions on the golden age of New York baseball, the city's transformation under planner Robert Moses, and the hip-hop fashion revolution in New York. Recent public programs have included a talk by Pulitzer-Prize winning author Robert Caro, an interior design symposium on New York's great residential spaces, and a musical tribute to the rich heritage of Yiddish theater and its influences on Broadway.
