The State

Concerned about cuts in art instruction for schoolchildren, philanthropist Muriel Gluck has donated $4 million to hire 50 visual arts teachers for the San Diego schools. Gluck, a Los Angeles resident who also maintains a home in San Diego, made the donation through the Maxwell H. Gluck Foundation, in memory of her late husband, founder of a chain of women's clothing stores. The gift will go to the San Diego Unified School District and the San Diego Museum of Art. As part of the arrangement, the museum will send artworks and special exhibits into the classrooms and artists will hold workshops for teachers of art.
