The Bermans were one of those great American families that was able to achieve a lot in their 55 year marriage together that benefitted their family, the city of Allentown, and the entire state of Pennsylvania. Both were born and raised in cities of Pennsylvania, Philip in Pennsburg, and Muriel in Pittsburgh. Philip went to Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania in 1932, but returned home to help with his father's trucking business the next year, where he would continue to build his fortune. Muriel went to Pennsylvania State College of Optometry in Philadelphia and had her doctorate by 1938. They met and married in 1942, the same week that Philip joined the Marines and went off to the South Pacific. They had 3 children and in 1948 purchased the first of their many pieces forming the basis for their wonderful collection that continued to grow over the decades. Both were involved in many Jewish causes, and belonged to the Congregation Keneseth Israel. Their collections grew as they traveled around the world and brought home their treasures to show or loan to various galleries.

  • Allentown Art MuseumAllentown Art Museum Allentown, Pennsylvania
    The Allentown Art Museum that sits in Allentown, Pennsylvania is an art museum that opened in 1934, by a group of people that was organized by well known Pennsylvania impressionist painter, Walter Emerson Baum, and contains over 13,000 works of art. Its library and archives contains another 16,000 items that make it not only an important regional art facility, but also an important cultural resource facility for the region. The Art Gallery that was organized by Baum, opened in the Hunsicker School in 1934, with 70 works donated by local artists of impression, that soon had local and regional art communities coming here to enjoy the beautiful paintings. In the Great Depression, Baum continued to expand the gallery's works by the Public Works of Art Project and in 1936, the city gave them a permanent home of Federal architectural styling in the Rose Garden area of Allentown's Cedar Park. John E. Berninger was the first curator, as well as being an artist himself, and with his wife, lived on the second floor of the new building. Samuel H. Kress, native of Cherryville, Pennsylvania donated his beautiful collection of 53 Baroque and Renaissance paintings and sculptures in 1959, and raised the status of the museum immensely. The museum's collections include a majority of European paintings, textiles and works on paper. Kress's gift seemed to motivate the city into buying and refinishing a former church that was built in 1902, and would be the perfect place to hold the new addition to the collection, as well as making a great venue for the museum. In 1975, Edgar Tafel helped redesign the church to showcase the collections, with a room that had been designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Francis W. Little house. European art includes pieces done by Frans Snyders, Giovanni del Biondo, Lorenzo Lotto and Paulus Moreelse; American artists include works by Gustav Johann Grunewalk and Gilbert Stuart with a floriform vase by Tiffany studios from 1905, textiles, prints and drawings.
