Reinharz Is Feeling the Heat
Both Tyler Green and Richard Lacayo are noting that University President Jehuda Reinharz is backing away from the announcement to sell the collection saying they don’t intend to sell the entire collection, just select works, or maybe not sell any of the works at all if the economy picks up.
More great coverage by the Boston Globe:
“Brandeis University President Jehuda Reinharz yesterday opened the
possibility that the university would not sell its $350-million art
collection, but said he would not change his mind about closing the Rose
Art Museum and turning it into a study and research center.”
“Harry Philbrick, director of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, e-mailed me a letter he sent to Brandeis President Jehuda Reinharz on behalf of a group of museum directors and curators who are angry about the university’s decision.”
At Modern Art Notes, Tyler Green posts an email the office of Brandeis president, Jehuda Reinharz, is sending to people who have emailed the university in opposition to his decision.
