Brandeis University and the Rose Art Museum

What will happen to the collection is anybody's guess.

"A week after Brandeis University announced its much-protested plan to close its Rose Art Museum and sell off its entire 7,180-work collection, that plan, meant to shore up the school's finances, is looking like less and less of an easy fix."

"Meanwhile, market experts are questioning the decision to sell the collection, all at once, in the midst of a market slump. New York dealer Debra Force, a former head of the American art department at Christie's, warns in the Journal that placing a large number of pieces up for sale "would flood the market and make this into a fire sale."
