Re: “Moving the Brooks Museum: Public Deserves More Information

"As part of that work, the Brooks Board of Directors recently passed a resolution that adds the option of relocation, outside Overton Park, to our current list of building options for expansion."

Full disclosure, I'm not a museum whisperer or anything like that, so I could be missing something entirely, but what I gather from the Brook's widely disseminated communication last week is that the Brooks has some longstanding issues with its physical plant and it aims to do something, after many years of false starts, about these issues.

And that doing something may or may not result in a departure from the problematic and costly current facility. Isn't this precisely what the museum's Board of Directors is charged with?

Sounds like they are being responsible stewards. So, for the news organs in the community who've generated more than a few copy inches on this topic, tending, by my read, to draw the conclusion that a move is a fait accompli, I ask: ARE YOU being responsible?
