The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is a little over a year into a two and one half year expansion to the facility that houses the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and the Dewitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. Both of these museums are treasures and will be more accessible once the construction is completed. I have gone to both often and always walk away impressed by the craftsmanship and creative work displayed – it is an alternative way to understand our country’s development.
Next year I will update this picture to see how things turned out. In the meantime, there is a real time web cam and an informative video towards the bottom of the expansion link that will give you an idea of how the construction is progressing and what to expect.
