Did you know you can watch the Expansion Project’s day-to-day progress on the Expansion Cam? All of the 500+ piles (steel support beams) have been driven into the bedrock and 2,150 trucks of dirt have been removed from the expansion site. Also, the first of two tower cranes was erected on the site in early July. Once completed, the new spaces will provide innovative and accessible experiences for both the artist and audience, including open rehearsal viewing and unique, interactive programming.
