In addition, subseries files document the design and construction of the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden in the mid-80s as well as museum expansion that includes the addition of the Central Administration and Glassell Junior School of Art buildings; the renovation of the Alfred C. Glassell, Jr. (Adult) School of Art; and plans for the Audrey Jones Beck building during the 1990s.
