    SHELBURNE — The Shelburne Museum’s new Center for Art and Education is scheduled to open on Aug. 18.

    The opening will mark the first time in the museum’s 66-year history that it will be open year-round.

    The center will allow the museum to have an expanded range of exhibitions and new programming.

    The 18,000-square-foot center was designed by Ann Beha Architects, a Boston-based firm. The center includes galleries, an auditorium and a classroom.

    The Center for Art and Education is part of the Campaign for Shelburne Museum, a $14-million capital campaign. The campaign also includes an endowment to sustain the center and installation of a fiber-optic communications network throughout the museum’s 45-acre campus.
