Park West Gallery Supports Institutes of Higher Learning

Gallery provides framing for previously donated artwork to Central Michigan University

    SOUTHFIELD, MI, August 20, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As part of its ongoing university donation program, Park West Gallery will be providing framing services for 100 works of art donated to Central Michigan University (CMU), allowing the works to be prominently displayed and making the artwork more accessible to Central Michigan students, its faculty, and members of the local community.

"It is always with great pleasure that Park West provides its services to institutes of higher learning," said founder and CEO of Park West Gallery, Albert Scaglione. "We hope that Central Michigan enjoys the artwork and, with it now being framed, is able to display the works in such a way that CMU students are able to significantly benefit from the collection."

Mr. Scaglione has been a supporter of Central Michigan University for many years. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Commerical Science by CMU during their commencement ceremonies last December. He also delivered the commencement address, inspiring the graduating seniors to pursue their dreams.

Over the past 10 years, more than $40 million dollars of art from the Park West Gallery collection has been donated by Albert Scaglione and his wife Mitsie. In addition to donating to Central Michigan University, the Scagliones have gifted artwork to: Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Henry Ford Community College, Jackson Community College, Lake Michigan College, Lawrence Technological University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Northwest State Community College, and Wittenberg University.

As part of its university donation program, Park West Gallery developed websites for each school. These sites provide information about the artists, images of the artwork in the school's collection, and links to the artists' own websites. Central Michigan's website can be found at
