Perhaps institutions will learn from this, and donors too. If you have substantial art in your collection it might be better to give it to an organization with the long term resources to take care of it. Too bad...regional museums are great for the locals that don't care enough about art to go to a big city. They have a place, but must have trustable management.

I'm still trying to figure out what our museum did with all the paintings Crane donated. I've asked and all i get is "for security reasons we don't discuss collection holdings". makes no sense, you can make an appointment with any Met curator and get into the storage rooms and actually handle the collections. Little 'ole pitssfield must be more important than the met ha ha ha!
