Three years later, a capital campaign was launched to raise the funds necessary to construct a professionally oriented facility with greatly expanded exhibition galleries and an art storage vault that would meet the highest museum standards. With support from a remarkable range of businesses, members of the community, the Board of Trustees and local and national foundations, the fund-raising campaign was completed in January 1993.
The elegant new museum, designed by Doylestown architectural firm Lynn Taylor and Associates, was opened to the public on July 18, 1993. Expansion of the Michener Art Museum represents a community dream come true. Bucks County's art has a home-a regional museum where its artistic soul can flourish.
