Brevard Art Museum gets $1M gift, new name -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Brevard Art Museum renamed Foosaner Art Museum
The Foosaner Foundation has announced that it will donate $1 million to Florida Tech to be used to support the Brevard Art Museum, which the university now runs.

The museum will be renamed the Foosaner Art Museum.
In a prepared press release, Negroni-Hendrick, who lives in Cocoa, stated: "You don't have to be wealthy to help others...If you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to make financial gifts of any amount, you should feel good about doing so. But if not, we are all blessed with time and talents that we can share with others."
"It's a win win for the university and the community," said Carla Funk, the newly named Director of Museums for Florida Tech.
