Drexel To Renovate Korman Center and Create New Campus Green With $8 Million Gift

Located at the heart of Drexel University’s campus, the Korman Center has been a University landmark for decades. With a generous commitment of $8 million from the Hyman Korman Family Foundation the 1958 building will soon get a complete makeover. After matching the Foundation’s gift with another $8 million, Drexel will proceed with plans to expand and repurpose much of the building as well as create the classic campus green in the open space—a popular student hangout known as the “Quad”—in front of and around the Korman Center.

Go “Behind the Seams” of Drexel’s Upcoming Historic Costume Exhibition

On Saturday, May 9, Clare Sauro, curator of the Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection in Drexel University’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, will give guests an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring an empty gallery to life with historic fashion treasures. At the spring “Style Saturday” event, entitled “Behind the Seams: The Making of a Costume Exhibition,” Sauro will discuss all aspects of an exhibit from mounting to mannequins, and why certain objects are chosen to be included over others. Guests also will get a sneak peak at some of the items that will be on display in the Collection’s first large-scale, retrospective exhibition, Immortal Beauty: Highlights from the Robert & Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection, which will be on display in the Leonard Pearlstein Galley (3401 Filbert St.) from Oct. 2 – Dec. 14. The exhibition is sponsored by the Richard C. von Hess Foundation and will be free and open to the public.
