"Could museums routinely sell shares of their work, raising billions of dollars they never thought possible? Maybe so."

Denver Post art critic Ray Mark Rinaldi makes a repulsive Stalinesque trickle down theorist suggestion:  "What if [Detroit] sold part ownership of a dozen or so pieces? That might help save the city with enough left over to actually purchase additional pieces for the collection, and expand arts education efforts to schools. Even the Association of Museum Directors would have a hard time arguing against that."  Oh, don't be so sure.
