Three overseers of the Rose Art Museum, including Meryl Rose, a member of the family whose donations created the museum, filed suit in a Massachusetts state court to prevent Brandeis University from closing the museum and selling off its collection. So far, university trustees have reaped about $100 million worth of bad publicity from their decision.
The lawsuit claims that the Brandeis plans “contradict the charitable intentions” of museum founders and donors, and “abrogate Brandeis’s promises that the Rose would be maintained in perpetuity.”
