Letter: Discussion of selling art is understandable


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

A couple of concerned letter writers are worried the city council finance committee may favor selling some of Roswell Museum & Art Center’s artwork. One of the writers, Sarah McArthur, does not believe council has authority to enact such a culturally deflating act.

The council’s contemplation of expropriating valued museum pieces for a short-term financial fix sounds wrong, but I do understand … given the number of our small businesses that are on life support.

This is not the first time that ownership of museum pieces has been encroached upon by “city government.”
