Trustees Pave Way for New Art Facility

UNIVERSITY PARK – A recent vote from the Penn State Board of Trustees makes it official – The Palmer Museum of Art will be getting a brand-new home at the Arboretum.

“Situating [the museum] within the Arboretum will create a cultural resource unlike any other in our region, connecting art, nature and science in exciting new ways,” said Penn State President Eric J. Barron. “The complex will further our strategic goals of advancing the arts and humanities and – because cultural opportunities also create economic opportunities – of driving economic development.”

The new facility comes with many perks, including the opportunity to display more of the university’s world-class permanent collections. Additionally, behind-the-scenes spaces will be improved with the goal to increase museum efficiency and provide areas for interns and grad students to work. The new facility will also include two new classrooms, a discovery/exploration space for children, a teaching gallery and more.

Keeping in line with the Arboretum, the gallery will include flexible indoor event spaces, along with an outdoor event terrace that can be used to host public events and generate revenue.

Already the largest art museum between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, The Palmer will continue to be a cultural asset for the State College community and beyond.

Report: State College is #1 Emerging PA Market

A study by The Wall Street Journal and Realtor.com has named State College the number one housing market in all of Pennsylvania – beating out big hitters like Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The new report is based on a variety of housing metrics, along with nonhousing indicators like how likely a person is to enjoy living in an area. Factors taken into consideration include supply/demand, median listing price, unemployment, wages, regional price parities, amenities, commute time and small business presence.

We’re thrilled to have our hometown recognized on a national level – an honor it truly deserves.

Want to buy or sell here? In an increasingly tight market, you’ll need a Realtor® on your side. Call us to get in touch with a RE/MAX professional who can help you achieve your real estate goals.
