"Let museums sell art if they must"

The editors of the Schenectady Gazette come out against the Brodsky Bill:

"Indeed, cultural institutions should only turn to [deaccessioning] as a last resort. But when it comes to selling a painting or similar asset to keep the doors open or pay the curator’s salary, they — like any other business — should have the right."

The Deaccessioning Blog says it "seems like the tide is turning on the anti-deaccessionists."
