Brandeis closes museum, sells collection

More bad news on the museum front from Brandeis University, which has announced that it is closing its Rose Art Museum and selling its 8,000 piece collection (which includes works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jasper Johns) as part of its response to a projected $10 million budget shortfall. Proceeds of the sale will be invested back into the University.
