PHOENIX — Baseball has been very good to former commissioner Bug Selig and Selig has been very good to the Phoenix Art Museum.
Selig donated $2.5 million to the central Phoenix museum this week, to be used to create the position of chief curator, the museum announced Thursday.
Congrats @phxart on receiving funding for a Chief Curator. Thx Suzanne + Bud Selig for this transformational contribution to our museum.

“This museum holds a special place in our hearts and
we hope our contribution allows it to develop into a m
useum that is recognized both nationally and internationally,” Suzanne Selig said. She sits on the board of trustees.
Bud Selig brought the Seattle Pilots/Milwaukee Brewers to the Cactus League in 1969.
