- The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Director David Franklin has resigned “for personal reasons,” and the board wishes him well. That’s about all a cleveland.com reporter sought to find out about the situation, but it was immediately followed by the news that the museum would be auctioning off a few works through Christie’s.
