Erie Hassam Update

Erie County officials continue to repulsively discuss the sale of a Childe Hassam hanging in their public library.  The proceeds would repulsively be used to seed an endowment for library collections.

Don't they know that they can't do that because the work is held in the public trust, to be accessible to present and future generations?  I mean, just ask the Brooklyn Museum.

It's not like it's the Season of the Museum Disposals or anything.
