CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Museum of Art is ringing in the new year with the completion of an eight-year expansion and renovation.

The museum's west wing opened to the public this past week, marking the end of a $350 million project that has transformed the museum.

The new galleries in the west wing feature statues, sculptures and other works from China, India and southeast Asia.

The museum just over a year ago opened its new glass-enclosed atrium connecting old and new museum buildings.

New galleries housing Egyptian, Greek, Roman and African art opened in the summer of 2010.

The expansion project that began in 2005 is giving the art museum more gallery space and new room for educational programs and events.
