The Snow of Past and Present

Although we New Englanders will be bundled up just like Henry Moore’s outdoor sculpture on campus  until the spring thaw, seeing the Harvard Art Museums’ facility covered in fresh snow never fails to bring us a spark of warmth. We’ve collected some wintry then-and-now pictures of the museums to share with you so that you can get a glimpse of our snow-covered facility without having to brave the elements. We love how the dusting traces the graceful window pediments of our building’s historic façade, just as it has for so many years.
