Smith College Museum of Art
A large majority of the artworks here are gifts of alumnae - many of whom started donating their prized posessions in the early 1900's. The building's $35 million renovation in 2003 transformed the simple concrete structure into a soaring stee-and-red bring Modernist creation with enormous light-filled galleries. The art collection spans more than 4,500 years.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
