The Hispanic Society Museum & Library in Upper Manhattan—one of the great repositories of art and culture from Spanish-and Portuguese-speaking countries—reopened its Main Building, closed since 2017, on April 6th with the completion of $20 million in infrastructural improvements.
The Spanish Renaissance-style Main Court, with its spectacular terracotta arcade, and the gallery dedicated to Joaquín Sorolla’s panoramic paintings cycle, Vision of Spain, originally installed in 1926, are disability accessible for the first time. The building has been refurbished with upgraded roofing, electrics, pipes, painting, lighting, and signage.
