Glenstone

The Glenstone Foundation in Potomac, Maryland, a museum that houses a top-tier post-war and contemporary art collection, has been sued for $24 million in damages by its contractor just weeks before its expansion debuts.

HITT Contracting filed the lawsuit over the building project, alleging that Glenstone failed to pay for numerous costly changes during construction.

Mitchell and Emily Wei Rales opened the Glenstone in 2006 to display their private collection in a Charles Gwathmey-designed building. New York-based architect Thomas Phifer designed the 204,000 square foot expansion which is set to debut to the public early next month. The venue will include an additional 50,000 square feet of exhibition space for modern and contemporary art, two cafes, a bookstore, and a total of 230 acres of landscaped meadows, woods, and streams.

At the time of the Oct. 4 opening, the new building will feature a number of spaces dedicated to single-artist installations, including major works by Michael Heizer, Roni Horn, On Kawara, Brice Marden, Lygia Pape, Charles Ray, and Cy Twombly, among others.
