Philanthropist Jordan Schnitzer gives $5 million through the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation to create Portland State’s first art museum.
Artslandia, an online Portland arts magazine, reports on yet another contribution from the Schnitzer family to expand on the city’s cultural offerings. Jordan Schnitzer will contribute $5 million from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation to Portland State University for it’s first art museum. Along the Portland’s Cultural District, the museum will feature Northwest artists, faculty and students along with exhibitions from national and international artists.
“I believe every student on every university campus should make going to an art museum part of the ordinary campus life,” said Schnitzer.
