The Frederick R Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in the US is to close for a year, to make way for expansion work at the facility.

The original museum was designed by architect Frank Gehry, who is also working on the expansion to complete his original design.

The design will add 752m² for four galleries, doubling the size of the museum.

The project has secured $14.1m, mostly in pledges, according to twincities.com.
