We are excited to report that we have raised $10 million toward this critical preservation. In our last project update, we shared that the major structural work of the Bicentennial Infrastructure Project was originally scheduled to take place over winter of 2020. However, due to the pandemic, that work was delayed, and the projected completion date is now spring 2022. This unfortunate delay impacted the total project cost by approximately twenty percent, raising the project total from $10.7 million to $12.7 million. The Taft Museum of Art is committed to continuing this important preservation and is in the process of working to secure additional dollars to help us reach this new goal.
We thank everyone for your support so far! It is because of your gifts to the Love This House campaign and your continued advocacy that we can ensure the Taft Museum of Art thrives for another 200 years.
We look forward to celebrating with you, providing further updates to the projects and opportunities to host you on-site to see the work that is being completed.
