Deaccessioning on TV

Lee Rosenbaum notes that on this week's Sunday Morning on CBS there's going to be a report on the National Academy and Rose Art Museum controversies. The segment is apparently entitled "The Art of Survival: Deaccessioning Artworks."

Speaking of which, I meant to highlight this quote from the Adrian Ellis piece in The Art Newspaper that I linked to yesterday:

"The straightforward fiat that is the current international norm—no deaccessioning unless you spend proceeds on more art—will either be finessed or ignored under the pressure of financial realities. "
