Plans for new Harrisburg art museum gallery approved

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Local officials have approved plans to move the Susquehanna Art Museum to a new location in Harrisburg on condition at least some of the work is done by city residents.

Harrisburg City Council approved a $5.5 million construction project Tuesday night that will move the museum to a former bank building. The museum’s former main gallery closed in December.

The Patriot-News of Harrisburg reports council members want to ensure money spent on the project stays in the community.
