Tuesday marked the reopening of the art museum’s Islamic art collection. It’s the first time the exhibit has been open since 2003.
According to the Huffington Post report, it’s undergone $40 million worth of renovation and expansion work.
The space also has a new moniker: Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia and Later South Asia.
It covers nearly 20,000 square feet, nearly a third of the size bigger before it was renovated.
