Brenda Cronin, writes of Jordan D. Schnitzer’s “teaching collection” of prints.
“I would hope that every student at every community college, every college and university, would make going to an art museum…part of their ordinary campus experience,” he says. He wants to bring art to people in remote areas and break down “the psychological walls that a museum is for someone else, some elitist few.”
In addition to growing his art collection he has grown Harsch Investment Properties, a company founded by his farther, Harold, in 1951.
Schnitzer says he finds pursuing real estate and art equally thrilling. The hunt, for properties or prints, is what propels him. “It’s wonderful to have the passion for wanting and never be able to get everything that you want,” he says, “because that would be pretty sad.”
