National Museum of Art Opens in Cardiff

This past weekend, Wales got its own National Museum of Art after a 10-year development. The museum will be  part of the National Museum Cardiff.

According to the Guardian, the museum will display work from the masters (think Renoir, Cézanne and Monet), but there will also be some contemporary and boundary-pushing pieces as well (for example, a jagged stone circle created by Richard Long that two weeks ago was nothing more than a pile of rejected hunks of slate in a north Wales quarry).

The multi-million dollar project involved the refurbishment of old galleries and the creation of six new spaces. Pieces that have long languished in storerooms have been hauled out and paintings and sculptures that were jammed together have been given more room.
