Later the same day, during All Things Considered, WHYY’s Joel Rose reports from Jefferson staff and students and a scholar on the art and history of assembling museums. Read more and listen to the report here.

If you happened to miss it yesterday, take a listen to author William S. McFeely’s talk about Eakins and his new Portrait: A Life of Thomas Eakins, from the Free Library of Philadelphia. Listen here.

    The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Eakins fund webpage at http://www.philamuseum.org/giving/509-398.html says that they’re at 40% of the goal. It doesn’t give a dollar amount, but 40% of 68M is 27.2M.

  4. KP Says:

    Wow. $27 million is a ton of money, but it still leaves a ways to go. I’m not optimistic.
