National Museum of Wildlife Art Announces New Lobby Name

January 2, 2019

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

The main lobby space at the National Museum of Wildlife Art gets a new name.

Now called “Pike and Susan Sullivan Hall,” the 4,900 square-foot space serves as a spectacular setting for dozens of events every year. From Museum events, to facility rental, this space is utilized by thousands of people annually.

“Susan and Pike Sullivan were immensely generous to many non-profits in this community. The timing and the size of their gift to the National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States did much to insure our future,” said Maggie Scarlett, Museum Founding Member and Trustee Emeriti. “It was and continues to be a ‘game changer.’ Naming our lobby, ‘Pike and Susan Sullivan Hall,’ which welcomes tens of thousands of visitors a year to our Museum, is our way of saying thank you not only for their financial generosity but for their generosity of spirit.”

An official celebration of the new name took place Friday, December 28, at 10 a.m.

“We wish to publicly thank Pike and Sue for their support and influence of this great organization,” said Steve Seamons, Museum Director. “On behalf of the Board, Staff, Volunteers, and Founding Members of the Museum, we proudly acknowledge the official naming of the main lobby of this Museum as the ‘Pike and Susan Sullivan Hall.’”

It is an indoor community space in Jackson large enough to host up to 500 people at once, and it opens onto the Museum’s outdoor Sculpture Trail Terrace and overlooks the National Elk Refuge.
