Patron gives $5M to WSU art museum

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State University is one step closer to having a new Museum of Art on its Pullman campus, thanks to a $5 million gift from a leading arts patron.

The gift comes from Jordan D. Schnitzer of Portland, Ore. He owns a vast collection of contemporary fine art prints and has supported the arts throughout the country.

Schnitzer is president of Harsch Investment Properties and manages the company's commercial real estate assets in Oregon, Washington California, Nevada and Arizona.

His gift, announced Tuesday, launches a $15 million campaign for a new and larger Museum of Art at WSU. The project has already received donations totaling $9 million.
