Situated on a hill at the edge of Cornell's arts quadrangle, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art commands an imposing view of Cayuga Lake, Ithaca, and the surrounding countryside. This impressive structure was designed by I. M. Pei, the great Chinese-American architect. Completed in 1973, it was his second museum, before the East Wing of the National Gallery, the West Wing of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the pyramid in the Louvre.
