(AP) Colby College has set the opening date for a new pavilion at its art museum.


The Waterville college says the July 13, 2013, opening of the 26,000-square-foot Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion will make the Colby College Museum of Art the largest art museum in Maine. The $15-million pavilion creates a light-filled gateway to the existing museum and provides an additional 10,000 square feet of exhibition space.


The inaugural exhibitions at the expanded museum will focus on a collection donated by Peter and Paula Lunder, valued at more than $100 million and including works from renowned American artists such as Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper and Georgia O'Keeffe, among others.


With the expansion, the museum will have over 8,000 works of art and more than 35,000 square feet of exhibition space.
