Save the Art and the judgement of Justice Lowy and the Supreme Judicial Court

Press Release – Save the Art
April 5, 2018

Save the Art – Save the Museum continues to oppose the sale and the unrestricted use of the resulting funds. We deeply regret the the judge’s decision to disregard the public trust and the importance of future consequences from this sale on public collections. As a group, we will make a more detailed statement after meeting in person to consider the loss to our community, the impact from the results of this decision and future actions.
