The items in question were part of an large estate – everything from particle board furniture to fine art. The president of our board, who knows little or nothing about museum practices/procedures, has selected some of the finer pieces to sell. Since they are not accessioned, not sure what recourse we have to discourage/stop this effort. @Marybeth – frankly, we never ‘accepted’ any of it; it was sort of dumped on us. Beyond the will, and the court directions (long battle & story here!), we have no paper work what-so-ever. Interesting situation……that’s why I’m seeking advice!
