MAN on MFA ethics (link)

Tyler Green discusses the ethics of museum shows that curry favor with their supporters. Is PAFA doing the same thing with their new show?

""This is a truly magical exhibition representing America’s huge achievement in the visual arts. In Private Hands offers a really unique opportunity to see almost 100 extraordinary works of art that remain in private hands," said Derek A. Gillman Academy President and the Edna S. Tuttleman Director.

"We are awed by the generosity of the collectors," Gillman continued. "When we conceived of this show as the final exhibition in our 200th Anniversary Celebration, we hadn't fully anticipated the great enthusiasm that this 200th Anniversary exhibition would generate from major collectors across the country, and just how many important works would be so generously lent."
