KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) – Kennesaw State University is breaking ground for an art museum outside Atlanta.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the 9,200-square-foot museum in Kennesaw is planned for 1 p.m. Tuesday.

School officials say the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art will house the university’s permanent art collection and serve as a cultural resource on contemporary art.

The museum is expected to open in the fall of 2013.
