The museum—designed by famed architect Tadao Ando and completed in 2001—is a place for people to see and experience art. The Pulitzer is also home to works by Richard Serra (Joe, 1999), Ellsworth Kelly (Blue Black, 2000) and Scott Burton (Rock Settee, 1988-1990).

A work of art in its own right, the museum has received international acclaim for its design. Each space channels natural light, varying sightlines, and scale in order to create a place for both individual and communal reflection.
