That's not the Crocker.

While browsing the local blog "Living in Urban Sac" , I was informed that the Crocker art museum has broken ground today. The newer and improved version of the museum will boast a new wing, designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects of New York, that is approximately 125,000 square feet and will more than triple the size of the current facility, adding four times the space for traveling exhibitions and three times the space for permanent collection exhibitions. The expansion will also provide dedicated programming space, including an education center and auditorium; onsite collections care including secure art storage and a conservation lab; a loading dock and freight elevator for easier art handling; a café; and an additional 7,000-square-foot courtyard.
