Fisk Trial About to Begin

Starts Aug. 11. The AP summarizes:

"Fisk hopes to sell a 50% share in the collection, donated by the late painter Georgia O'Keeffe, with the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Ark. The school would use the proceeds from the deal to shore up its finances."

If only it were okay for two museums to each own a 50 percent interest in a body of work, and share the financial burden, and having a second venue were fair to the art, which gets more visibility.
