NY About to Allow Museums to Sell Collections

I know this article from Wall Street Journal is already being passed around the museum blogosphere, but I think it warrants being mentioned here as well, especially since it raises questions about both the financial stability of small museums versus the desires of larger ones as well as the duty of all museums to their collections and the public. In a surprise turn of events, New York's Board of Regents "will allow emergency regulations that prohibited cash-strapped museums from selling their artworks to cover expenses to expire next month." Read the full article here. I'll be curious to see your thoughts on the subject.
