Folk Art Museum, Seaport Museum in talks to partner

There’s been a lot of ink spilled about New York’s struggling Folk Art Museum in the last year or so; things had gotten so bad for the little place that they wound up having to sell their main building to the MoMA in May. (We won’t say anything about the wisdom of spending a borrowed $32 million on said building.)

Part of that scratch might include a joint exhibition between the two museums; talks are ongoing. Hey, it couldn’t hurt. (FULL ARTICLE: Julie Shapiro, DNAinfo)
