PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL VASILIADES, PAULVPHOTOGRAPHY.COM The new Susquehanna Art Museum (SAM), featuring four art galleries and multiple education classrooms, is located in Midtown (1401 North Third Street, Harrisburg) in two interconnected buildings: the restored 1916 Greek Revival Keystone Trust Company building and the contemporary two-story addition designed by the architectural firm EwingCole of Philadelphia. SAM unveiled the inaugural exhibition Pop Open: Icons of Pop Art from Niagara University. On loan from Niagara University’s Castellani Art Museum, the exhibition presents 50 works by major Pop Arts artists including Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Tomato Soup, 1968, and will run from January 15 – March 1, 2015. Educational programs, tours with SAM’s Board of Directors and educators, and other events including 3rd in the Burg participation, will support and inform visitors of all ages about this exciting exhibition. In the future SAM’s four exhibition galleries will showcase local, national, and international artists. “I am proud of our community, members, and staff who have all come together to make this building a reality,” said Laurene Buckley, Susquehanna Art Museum’s executive director. “It represents an extraordinary accomplishment that could have only been achieved through the support and commitment of a host of individuals who all share a common goal of supporting the arts.”
