50 x 50

In Friday's New York Times, Carol Vogel had a story on collectors Herbert and Dorothy Vogel and their "50 Works for 50 States" initiative -- they're going to give blocks of 50 works to each of 50 museums, across the country. The gifts come with two conditions: "The museum must exhibit the works within five years (with exceptions made when expansion or renovation closes a building), and the works may be transferred only if they are given to another institution as a group."
