Savannah art museum plans expansion

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - The school expects to break ground on the 90,000-square-foot expansion by this fall. it will transform a shell of an old railroad depot into a new exhibit center that will house a
collection of African-American art valued at $10 million.

Walter Evans, a physician who donated the collection, said the
depot is in the heart of what once had been a thriving black
commercial district.

The college has launched a fundraising campaign for construction
and city leaders say they are excited about the project.

Alderman Jeff Felser says the potential for partnership between
the school and city is "endless."
