Philadelphia philanthropists Irvin J. Borowsky and Laurie Wagman have given more than $1 million to the Tyler School of Art's glass program. Borowsky said that Temple's status as a public institution provided impetus for the gift. "We believe in opportunity," Borowsky said, emphasizing that the Tyler gift should be seen in the context of the city's burgeoning cultural identity. "We're proud of the momentum of the Philadelphia arts scene…," said Wagman. "If we're going to leave an imprint, this is the place."
