SAN MARINO-- Work has started on the Huntington Library's new $60-million, 43,000-square-foot education and visitor center, designed to provide "world-class space for our world-class programming," Randy Shulman, the Huntington's vice president for advancement, said Thursday.

"The Huntington has envisioned a project like this for many years and the actual planning started in earnest six years ago," Shulman said. And when it opens in early 2015, the annual 550,000 visitors will find themselves immersed in an interactive museum experience "the minute they step out of their cars or lock up their bikes," he said.

"It's not just a new entrance building but a gateway into ... a proper understanding what happens inside the library, a glimpse behind the scenes," he said.
