The $10.75 million sale is an important milestone in the ongoing transformation of the Levine Museum. 

For 20 years, the current location has served as a central gathering place for courageous exhibitions, productive dialogue, and community celebrations. The proceeds from the sale of the building will enable the Museum to continue that work in a newer, more flexible space, and to invest in creating robust digital experiences.

The museum will remain open to visitors through May 15.
