Fire sale at Brandais

The Board of Trustees at Brandais has voted to close the university's art museum, despite protests from students, alumni and others. The museum had its own board and did its own fundraising.

Curators of university art museums are watching this one closely, wondering if their institutions might see an art collection sale as a quick way to raise funds in tough economic times.
