  • Berkshire Says Good-bye to the Smithsonian

    September 7, 2017

    Berkshire Museum

    Due to their decision to sell off 40 works from its collection to fund an endowment and renovations (a big no, no, for museums), the Berkshire Museum has cut ties to the Smithsonian Institution. I bet it would be more accurate to state that the Smithsonian cut the ties since the sale is in violation of the American Alliance of Museum’s guidelines for the use of funds generated from the sale of art.

    There has to be a better way! Oh, we posted one the other day.
