Salisbury University Downtown Ribbon Cutting

The Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District Committee’s 3rd Friday provided a festive setting for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception with Salisbury University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach and donors Tony Gilkerson and Palmer Gillis, celebrating their gift of The Gallery Building and Annex to the SU Foundation, Inc. Enthusiastic supporters applauded this major step in the University’s growing downtown presence.

The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents that morning unanimously approved acceptance of the donation of the West Main Street building, one of downtown Salisbury’s signature structures, valued at some $4.4 million.
