Get Involved!!!

In our upcoming column we talk about the dire straits many museums and libraries find themselves in due to the current recession. And Congress came very close to specifically excluding museums from receiving any of the moneys doled out as part of the recent economic stimulus package. Public institutions like museums and libraries are the repository of our shared culture and we, as collectors, dealers, and auctioneers, need to make it known that we value them. How can you help? Contact your representatives and urge them to help ensure adequate funding! Check out the following sites to find the various elected officials that represent you:
