Fisk Deadline Passes

The 30-day deadline for Fisk University to come up with a plan to keep two important paintings in its Stieglitz Collection expired Sunday afternoon. Presumably, the university will now go ahead with the sale of O'Keeffe's Radiator Building to the O'Keeffe Museum for $7 million and Marsden Hartley's Painting No. 3 to the highest bidder. The Nashville Tennessean story is here. An earlier post of mine on the deal is here.
