Last year the Springfield Museum of Art looked to its members for suggestions on how to deal with a budget shortfall. Now a new collaboration with Wittenberg University will provide new opportunities for students and more financial sustainability for the museum.
Wittenberg will purchase the museum facility and lease part of the space back to the Springfield Museum of Art.
Museum Director Angus Randolph says that this will help put the focus back on the art.
