Museum Benefit Features Commissioned Art Auction

Pittsburgh plein-air artist and IUP graduate Ron Donoughe has offered to create one of his trademark nine-by-twelve-inch house paintings. People attending this year’s University Museum benefit, the Black Diamond Jubilee, will have the opportunity to bid on this custom-painted, one-of-a-kind piece of fine art.
