The Metal Museum proposes to spend $21 million to renovate Overton Park’s Rust Hall and make it a “world class museum and educational center." The museum board approved what it calls the “expansion plan" in September as part of its campaign to win the keys to Rust Hall. The 78,000-square-foot headquarters of Memphis College of Art becomes available after the school closes in May 2020.
