Barnes alert


Just a quickie to say today’s Inquirer had a news item by Patricia Horn in the business pages stating Judge Ott will be making his decision about the Barnes move by Dec. 15. Stay tuned. (You know our positions. We’re for the move.)

Here’s Horn’s bulletin in toto:

Judge in Barnes case expects to rule by Dec. 15

Montgomery County Orphans’ Court Judge Stanley Ott expects to issue a ruling by Dec. 15 on whether the Barnes Foundation can break with its founder’s wishes and move its famed art collection from its home in Merion to a new gallery in Philadelphia. The trustees of the Barnes Foundation, along with three large Philadelphia foundations, want to build a new museum for the Barnes’ art collection on the Parkway. The Barnes’ trustees filed the case in Orphans’ Court in September 2002.- Patricia Horn
