Glenstone, the museum of modern and contemporary art just outside Washington, announced Monday a massive expansion set to open Oct. 4 that would make it one of America's largest such private institutions.The former fox hunting estate's natural setting is meant to encourage contemplation for visitors, who can marvel at the art and architecture for free.It's a dramatic expansion from the original, 30,000-square-foot building that increases gallery space by nearly six times and can boost visitor capacity from 25,000 to 100,000 per year, though the number of daily visitors will be limited to ensure a more intimate experience with the art.While some of the rooms will show single-artist installations, others will include temporary exhibitions of pieces by various artists.
