Francine Miller discusses Cashing in on Culture and the Rose Art Museum
Presented by Back Pages Books
May 24, 2012
When the Rose Art Museum proposed its plan to close and sell its invaluable 8,000-piece collection to close university budget gaps, Francine Miller became an outspoken critic in favor of its preservation.
As both a respected Boston-area art critic and a Brandeis alumnus, Miller's attempt to save the Rose, one of the country's most visited university art museums, was a cause very dear to her. The results of her efforts have kept the museum intact for its fiftieth year, and have culminated in a book documenting its rise from recession.
Join us as we host Francine Miller for a discussion of the book her publisher called "a very local story with national implications."
