Attorneys & Professionals

Michael Martz, Vorys’ managing partner, was quoted in a Columbus Dispatch story regarding the donation of the Pizzuti Collection contemporary art museum — and 40 works of art — to the Columbus Museum of Art.  Martz, who also serves as the president of the Columbus Museum of Art Board of Trustees, discussed the importance of the project in the article.

The story states:

“Although Pizzuti declined to reveal the value of the donated artworks, museum officials said the Pizzutis’ gift is among the top three in the museum’s 140-year history.

‘I don’t think we can express enough our sincere and deep gratitude to the Pizzuti family,’ said Michael Martz, president of the museum board of trustees.

In 1991, the Sirak family of Bexley made an $8 million donation-purchase agreement with the museum for 78 works, which were valued at $80 million at the time. In 2006, Margaret and Robert Walter donated $10 million, leading to the opening in October 2015 of the Margaret M. Walter Wing.”
