Regents grant $35M for
of 'U' art museum
By Carmen Johnson
Daily Staff Reporter
FLINT - Now with the University Board of
Regents' approval, architects will begin designing
a $35 million expansion and renovation of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Museum of Art.
The museum, which currently displays only 3
percent of its collection due to space shortages,
will be expanded, doubling its existing space.
The project, to be funded primarily through pri-
vate funding, has already received $6 million in
But construction will not start until fundraising is
complete, University President Mary Sue Coleman
said at yesterday's Regents' board meeting in Flint.
A major fundraising campaign will begin next
year, hoping to capitalize on the recent attention
generated from the museum's high-profile exhibits
like the current art on loan from the State Her-
mitage Museum in St. Petersburg - artwork dis-
played in the United States for the first time.
"As demonstrated so clearly by the St. Peters-
burg tricentennial, the (University's) museum plays
a significant role in supporting interdisciplinary
learning and engaging the community in the visual
arts," Coleman said.
Museum Director James Steward said he is
excited about the approval of the renovation project.
"The museum is in desperate condition when it
comes to space," Steward said, who has been direc-
tor since 1998. "We struggle with the space."
Steward added that the expansion might be added
in the space between Angell Hall and the museum.
Ann Arbor resident Susanne Alexander gives
weekly talks on special exhibits at the museum.
"It will be terrific to have more space for
our large collection,"
"As demonstrated so
clearly by the St.
the (University's) museum
plays a significant role in
and engaging the
community in the arts."

Alexander saids. "It will benefit visitors and staff."
Allied Works Architecture, based in Portland,
Ore., has been asked to undertake the job. Plans
include the addition of classrooms, a small restau-
rant and more exhibit space.
"Allied Works Architecture is now doing
some of the most refined museum buildings in
the United States," Steward said. "I admire their
ability to combine a warm and elegant minimal-
ism with great sensitivity to historically signifi-

ommttee delays approval
of Mich. judge to fedcourt
WASHINGTON (AP) - A
Senate committee again delayed
action yesterday on the nomina-
tion of a Michigan judge to a
federal appeals court.
Senate Judiciary Committee
Chairman Orrin Hatch made no
comment after delaying for a
third time a scheduled vote on
the nomination of Michigan
Court of Appeals Judge Henry
Saad. President Bush has nomi-
nated Saad for a seat on the 6th
U.S. Court of Appeals.
Saad's nomination process
has been a rocky one. U.S. U.S.
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Detroit)
and Debbie Stabenow (D-
Lansing) attempted to block a
hearing on Saad's nomination
over the summer. They were
angered because former Michi-
gan Sen. Spencer Abraham, a
Republican, had blocked hear-
ings on two of President Clin-
Margarita Tapia, a spokes-
woman for Hatch, said he and
Levin are trying to work out a
compromise, but she wouldn't
discuss any details. Stabenow
was further angered this month
when she received e-mail com-
ments from Saad that may have
been inadvertently sent to her.
In the e-mail, Saad complained
about the nomination process
and said, "perhaps some day
(Stabenow) will pay the price
for her misconduct."
Stabenow and Levin sent a
letter to White House counsel
Alberto Gonzales on Oct. 4 say-
ing the tone of Saad's e-mail
was highly offensive.
