New or newly expanded museums around the country this spring will showcase everything from Tiffany lamps to Wyeth paintings, as well as some cutting-edge new architecture to house it all.

“Wyeth: An American Legacy, Treasures from the Farnsworth Art Museum” and Japanese woodblock prints are on view at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art which opened March 27 after two years of construction, a nine-month closure and $5.5 million in capital improvements.

Debuting May 1 is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts new McGlothlin Wing, a five-level, 165,000-square-foot, glass-and-stone structure that cost $150 million.

North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh opens its 65,000 square feet of sun-filled, but ultra-violet light-protected galleries on April 24. New acquisitions will be showed off, too.
