Portland Art Museum received its largest donation from a single donor this month.
Philanthropist Arlene Schnitzer donated $10 million to help shape the museum and secure its place in the arts community.
“This extraordinary gift is a profound investment in our role as Portland’s museum for art and film, but also in the future of the arts in our region,” said director and chief curator of the museum, Brian Ferriso, as reported by OPB.
The funds will help support the museum’s Connections Campaign, which aims to pay for bringing together two buildings on its campus.
“Art is the best of what we do in society. In the complicated lives we all have, we all need to be inspired — and art is inspirational,” said Schnitzer.
