MUSEUM PROGRESS REPORT

Thanks to the generous contributions of members of the Cultural Center and a much discounted price by Jaenette Brzoska we have been able to purchase the building that will house the museum. Now comes the hard work to renovate the building and convert it to function as a museum.
Our plans are to have separate rooms for displays of art and sculpture, Polish folklore, military memorabilia, and a history of Polish emigrants in Cleveland. A separate area will be set aside to display works of local artists and visiting exhibits.  The museum will also house a Polish library and a reading room.
We have assembled a group of experts to advise us on the designs for the future museum. There will be a committee to supervise the operation of the museum and we are looking into partnering with other Polish museums. Much needs to be done before the museum becomes a reality. However, the job will be done with the help of those willing to participate in this worthwhile project.
We welcome your suggestions, your involvement and above all your financial help. The cost of the renovation and operation of the museum will have to borne by the contributions from our members and friends. We encourage all Polonians to participate.
The contributions for the museum should be made to the Polish American Cultural Center – Museum. A separate account is designated and maintained for the specific needs of the museum. Thank you.
