Christopher Bedford updates us on recent activities at The Rose Art Museum

In this week's edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Christopher Bedford, director of The Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, updates us on some of the recent activities at the museum. First, Chris shares how he has lead the museum past some of the negative publicity garnered in 2009 when it was announced, but not actually implemented, that Brandeis would close the museum and sell its permanent collection to curtail losses associated with the global financial crisis. Then, he details the incredible story of the museum's first director, Sam Hunter, and how he developed an incredible contemporary art collection for the museum in the 1960's on a limited budget. Also, Chris tells us how collectors today can learn from Sam Hunter's approach to building the museum's collection for their own private art collections. Further, Chris reveals how he balances exhibiting works from the museum's permanent collection versus organizing exhibitions featuring art from outside the museum's collection. L
