Susquehanna Art Museum changes name with $2M gift

By ,

The Susquehanna Art Museum in Midtown Harrisburg has changed its name thanks to a $2 million gift from local art collectors.

As of Sunday, the nonprofit museum is now being called the Susquehanna Art Museum at the Marty and Tom Philips Family Art Center. The Philips family is donating the $2 million pending a $1 million donation challenge to the community, officials said. 

The community has two years to respond to the naming gift.

The art museum, which opened in the former Keystone Trust Co. building on North Third Street in 2015, also announced two other naming gifts.

The S. Wilson and Grace M. Pollock Foundation is supporting the education center gallery and Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP is supporting the entry portico at the museum's main entrance.

That's some donation. Hope you'll be able to put it to great use. We've visited the museum a couple of times and will be popping in again next time we visit our cousins in Dauphin County.
