a rose by any other name

February 18, 2009

[Guardian] Bernard Madoff, who made off with the fortunes of a lot of sad, previously rich people, has also made off with an entire art museum. This is what happened: Brandeis University had a big piece of its endowment invested with Bernie. So that disappeared, and then it turned out that a lot of people who are major donors to Brandeis also had invested with Bernie. So Brandeis was in a financial mess. What they decided to do was close the Rose Art Museum, a beautiful little museum that sits on its campus and exhibits mostly postmodern art. They’re also going to sell off their collection so they can raise some money, so they don’t have to fire teachers and grad students. They intend to use the studios and gallery spaces for art students at Brandeis. (read on, though i should admit that by the end  i had no idea what her point was)
