Officials at WVU broke ground on Tuesday for the university's brand new art museum.

More than 100 people gathered for a ceremony marking the beginning of a projected estimated to cost more than $9 million. The
museum will house more than 3,000 works of art that are currently being stored on campus.

It will also include space for research, an outdoor sculpture garden, and a classroom.

Dr. Joyce Ice is the director of the art museum. She said the new facility will be a great addition for not only students, but people all over the state.

"We see the art museum as contributing to the quality of life and the culture of life that's here in Morgantown and the state. This offers so many new opportunities for students, faculty, and the entire region," said Ice.

The museum is expected to be open in 2015.
