For years, the New Britain Museum of American Art has been called "a little gem" by Connecticut's art aficionados. It's time for a new nickname.

The first museum in the nation dedicated solely to American art is still a gem, but it's not little any more.

On Sunday, Oct. 18, for the second time in a decade, the NBMAA cut the ribbon on a sizable expansion of the 112-year-old museum, where the growth of its collection has been impressive as well, more than doubling in recent years.
