Podcast | S02 Ep5: Settlement with Attorney General Gives Berkshire Museum Nearly All It Sought
After intervening in the Berkshire Museum’s planned sale of $60-million worth of art works, including paintings by Norman Rockwell, the Massachusetts Attorney General reached a settlement with the museum that allows for the potential sale of all 40 works included in the institution’s original plans.
Meanwhile, opponents of the museum’s sale are weighing their options and considering further legal action.
In this edition of the Berkshire Eagle podcast, host Mark Mills speaks with Eagle reporter Larry Parnass about the agreement between the museum and the attorney general, issues that have been raised by the controversy and the museum’s evolving mission, which is to be financed by proceeds from the art sale.
