In preparation for the October Grand Reopening, the Walters Art
Museum will close all but Hackerman House, the museum's Asian art
galleries, for five months beginning May 1, 2001, to complete the
$24-million renovation to the Centre Street Building.
On www.thinker.org, the WAG is
mentioned as an owner of a full-size Thinker cast. Kirsten Lavin, Public
Relations Coordinator, informed me that this cast was deaccessioned to the
University of Louisville (see there) and that the WAG owns two other
Rodin's: Death of Adonis and Cupped Hands.
