Global Museum Opening Delayed Until Spring

Friday, September 11, 2015
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The SF State community will have to wait a little bit longer to see artifacts from around the world at the new Global Museum in the Fine Arts Building on campus. The exhibition reopening has been postponed to early Spring 2016 due to construction delays, according to the Museum Studies Program website. Daniel Bernardi, interim dean of the College of Liberal & Creative Arts, said that the discovery of a concrete subfloor during the construction of the new dance studio in the Creative Arts Building pushed back the opening of the museum, since the museum is taking over the dance studio’s old space in the Fine Arts Building. “The University community can expect that the collections it houses are done so with the upmost of respect and professionalism, that our educational mission is advanced to one of the world’s best museum studies programs and that the community will have access to some amazing diverse cultural artifacts,” Bernardi said.
