JORDAN SCHNITZER Museum of Art at Washington State University
THE JORDAN SCHNITZER MUSEUM OF ART
“The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art that we envision – an architectural beacon in the heart of campus – will complete the picture of a great university and provide a unique window into what it means to be a citizen of the world,” said Elson S. Floyd, late WSU president, about the new facility.
The project will break ground in November and is scheduled for completion in spring 2018. A gift of $5 million from Portland philanthropist and art collector Jordan Schnitzer – for whom the museum will be named – has provided nearly half of the $11 million to be raised from private sources. WSU will provide $4 million.
The museum permanent collection includes approximately 3,500 works. Among the most important are American paintings from the “Ash Can” School of the 1920s-30s; Goya’s “Los Disparates” print portfolio; 174 original photographs and prints by Andy Warhol; 201 works on paper by Jim Dine; a comprehensive collection of Northwest glass; and a recent gift of 39 works by Northwest artists from the Safeco collection.

We have created a job site camera monitoring system for the Museum of Art project. We have two cameras currently monitoring the site 24/7. One camera is located on top of Martin Stadium Press Box facing south while the other is located on top of Wilson Hall facing east. We are capturing images from each camera every 5 minutes and then sending them to this website where users can toggle back in time at five minute increments. If you ever see an image that says “frame not found” that could be for a variety of reasons. The first thing to check is to make sure you are on a calendar point of time that is “back in time”. The time lapse video is a running compilation of all 5 minute images.
Note: There may be some condensation on both cameras at certain times of the day when it is really cold.
