The New American Wing

I couldn't help but be excited when I entered the American Wing (from the Temple of Dendur side) and found the space to my left open into a giftshop, with the Charles Engelhard Court beyond. This was uncharted territory for me, the final frontier. The sun poured in from the glass enclosing the entire ceiling and western wall, as my eyes darted from sculptures to Tiffany glass to live plants.
