Nelson Atkins Museum, Interior of New Addition

I was greatly impressed how the Henry Bloch addition sensitively complements the older Nelson-Atkins building.

It might be cliche, but it really is a symphony of curves and angles that harmonize together.

I was left wanting to just explore the new wing, walking up and down the long ramps and staircases.

The contemporary art shown in the new wing looks great in its complementary surroundings.

Modern architecture can reconcile with the classical art of the past.
