WAM director corrects statement on public money for museums
In the Oct. 21 Museums Special section of the Boston Globe, Worcester Art Museum director Matthias Waschek was asked whether museums should be free to the public. In his response, he said that “a museum that gets public money is free. The MFA doesn’t get a dime. Nor do we, of public money.” Blogger Greg Cook took issue with that, as did the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Today Waschek issued a clarification and apology.
