Berkshire Museum: Art on the Block
The Berkshire Museum recently announced a $60 million plan for its future, largely supported by the sale of those works from its permanent collection, including a $40 million boost for its endowment and a $20 million renovation.
Museum officials have said it expects to fetch at least $50 million from the auction, which will be handled by Sotheby's.
Local reaction to the announcement, as well as from the larger arts community, has been varied.
