Bowdoin College Walker Art Building


Bowdoin College Walker Art Building, Brunswick ME

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art, also know as the Walker Art Building, is a premier example of turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts classicism. It was designed by the leading Beaux-Arts architect, Charles Follen McKim, who also designed the commanding Boston Public Library and the Morgan Library in New York.

The museum recently underwent a $20.8 million renovation and expansion that included the construction of a dramatic glass and bronze entry pavilion. The Bowdoin College Museum of Art houses a collection that is among the oldest and most significant of any college or university in the United States. Above all, the museum is a teaching facility, and the collections are accessible to students, faculty scholars and art lovers.
