Museum Family Denounces Brandeis

“The university's trustees voted in January to close the museum and sell its works, which are estimated to be worth about $350 million. The university later backtracked, saying the Rose would remain open as an academic fine arts center, but not a public museum. It has put together a panel to help determine the museum's fate; its first meeting is Thursday.
“'Re-purposing' the museum is closing by another name,” 50 family members said in a statement released Monday night at a symposium at the Rose. “It would not be the Rose. Any other understanding of the university's current plan is disinformation.”
