The Philadelphia Museum of Art is now showcasing plans to update and renovate its main building. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the design is by celebrated architect Frank Gehry, for whom the project was both atypical and pre-ordained.

The exhibition Making a Classic Modern: Frank Gehry’s Master Plan for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which includes drawings and architectural models, runs through September 1, 2014.
