Closed to the public for 13 months now, still preparing for a long-anticipated, $12-million renovation and expansion, the 54-year-old Bowers Museum has become the Greta Garbo of the Orange County museum world. With a collection of 100,000 art and anthropological objects from the Americas, Africa and Oceania--most of them rarely seen by the public--the museum has always lacked a clear identity. But now that the galleries are dark, the museum seems even more obscure.

Bissell Architects of Newport Beach has released preliminary drawings for a $6-million addition to the 53-year-old Bowers Museum. The design--which adds 51,672 square feet to the museum, increasing its size threefold--retains the historic facade of the museum.
