The Museum of Wisconsin Art has unveiled plans for a new 33,000ft² building near downtown West Bend.

The art museum plans to purchase a triangular-shaped property from the city to build the $11m building, east of the Milwaukee River and south of Washington Avenue, according to biztimes.com.

Museum development and marketing director Joan Rudnitzki said HGA Architects would design the building, which would be more efficient and increase display space by two-and-a-half times.

The present 19,000ft² building at 300 South Sixth Street was originally built in 1931 and officially opened in 1961.
