A-State museum gets $500,000 donation

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Bradbury Gallery at A-State has a new look and a new name.

Curt and Chucki Bradbury of Little Rock recently donated $500,000 to the gallery, challenging other supporters to do the same.

And now, the Bradbury Art Museum is complete and open.

The 5,200 square foot exhibition space has been re designed to create five separate galleries.

Artwork will rotate throughout the galleries, offering people a greater number of exhibits with a larger variety of art.

"Other parts of the state have multiple venues for appreciating and observing fine art and we felt like that Northeast Arkansas cannot, should not take a back seat to any other parts of the state," Curt Bradbury said.

The Bradburys made the original endowment for the gallery in 2001.
