SECOND WORST ABDICATION BY A MUSEUM:
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's deal with a for-profit outfit to organize the "Tut" show last summer (full ticket price: $30). Naturally, the show was a hit, but at the cost of the museum's good name.
WORST ABDICATION BY A MUSEUM:,
The very same Los Angeles County Museum of Art's arrangement with Eli Broad to build a gallery for his collection on museum property (city-owned, tax-free land), which he will oversee and the museum will pay to maintain. The gamble is that he donates the art someday. Meanwhile, he is also on the board of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
