The New York Times had a special section on museum-related issues yesterday. Lots of good stuff, including excerpts from a panel discussion on the antiquities problem with Philippe de Montebello, James Cuno, Kwame Anthony Appiah, and others; the story of some clever litigators trying to seize Iranian assets on loan to several U.S. museums as a way of enforcing a default judgment in a terrorism lawsuit; and, perhaps most importantly, a piece about the evolution of museum restaurants.
