The Renovation

Rob Steele, President and CEO of Old School Square, explains, “The Cornell Art Museum is undergoing dramatic interior renovations and will, in all-likelihood, erupt into the SoFlo art scene as a ‘not to miss’ destination asset.  Great care has been taken with this renovation project to assure that the timeless charm of this historic schoolhouse melds with the function of a unique art museum.  We are confident the result will speak volumes without words.” The renovation has been made possible through the generous support of Mrs. Margaret Blume, who said, “I want to enhance the use of this historic school house for the display and enjoyment of art. With the Cornell Museum, less is more.  It’s a little gem that is perfect for a short, but lovely, cultural experience in the heart of Delray Beach.”
