The Johnson's Expansion Wins Awards

May 3rd, 2012

Ithaca, NY—The Johnson Museum of Art’s expansion project has been the recipient of several recent local and regional awards. 

In November 2011, the Museum was among the seven local recipients of a Pride of Ownership Award, sponsored by the Ithaca Rotary Club and the City of Ithaca. This was the fourteenth annual presentation recognizing owners of properties within the City of Ithaca who have developed projects or taken care of their properties in ways that enhance the physical appearance of city neighborhoods and commercial areas. 

In April 2012, the project was awarded the 2011 Concrete Gold Medal from the Central New York Chapter of the American Concrete Institute. These annual awards recognize the area's best concrete and masonry projects, while promoting the use of these materials and raising awareness.

In May 2012 the Museum was among the seven local recipients of a Historic Ithaca Preservation Award. Historic Ithaca presents awards for sensitive restoration and preservation projects within Tompkins County based on the importance of the project to the long-term preservation of the building and the impact, or potential impact, of the project on the surrounding community.

Congratulations to project architect Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners Architects LLP and Murnane Building Contractors.
