Own A Piece Of Boston’s MFA

This coming Thursday Swann Galleries in New York is auctioning off a bundle of African-American artworks currently owned by Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, as the hardworking staff has previously noted.

Back then an MFA spokeswoman graciously informed us that the deaccessioning is standard practice in the museum world and will allow the MFA to better serve the local art-viewing public.

Fair enough.
