Letter: Shields, museum board should step down ASAP


To the editor:

Van Shields and the board of directors of the Berkshire Museum should do the right thing and step down ASAP. They are a colossal embarrassment to our community. The damage they have done in the eyes of the art world is irreparable. Our beautiful museum has made headlines all over the world for all the wrong reasons.

I implore more people to speak out. This includes our local politicians.

John DiTomasso,
