23 July 2010 No Comment

Recognizing the powerful difference the arts can make in a community, in the classroom and in the lives of young people, Wittenberg University artmuseumand The Springfield Museum of Art have entered into an agreement enabling Wittenberg to purchase the museum facility located at 107 Cliff Park Road.
“Our decision to purchase the facility provides a win-win for the community of Springfield, the museum and our students,” said Wittenberg President Mark H. Erickson. “Through this collaboration, a renewed vision for the arts in Springfield will unfold that engages the museum board and longtime museum patrons, as well as Wittenberg faculty and students.”
In addition to providing more gallery space in which to exhibit students’ work in the community, the museum purchase also allows the university to consider programs in arts management and museum studies, among others. Moreover, Wittenberg will now have a black box studio theatre again for performances and student-directed plays thanks to the conversion of the museum’s Sycamore Room now underway.
