How do museums create their collections

Posted at 2:25 pm in Similar cases

The Iconoclasm blog has an interesting piece on the signs in the Brooklyn Museum, stating clearly their acquisitions policies. I’m not sure what some other institutions would have to write (that would be truthful) if they had to put similar notices in their own galleries.

Read the original article, along with an image of the sign in question here.
