The Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas has received $500,000 from three brothers, the largest gift since the museum was established.

The donation, which will be used for acquiring art, came from Jack and Candy Clevenger of suburban Kansas City, and from his brothers Raymond and Thomas, and Thomas' wife, Linda.The fund was created in honor of the brothers' parents, the late R. Charles and Mary Margaret Clevenger of Topeka, university officials said Monday.
