Bloch Family Foundation Will Finance Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Renovation

The Bloch Family Foundation will finance a nearly two-year, $11.7 million renovation at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art designed to house an expanded impressionist and post-impressionist collection. The new space will bring into public view 29 works from the personal collection of Henry and Marion Bloch, a gift of paintings promised by the family in 2010 in connection with the museum’s 75th anniversary.
