Another Retraction In The News - Museum of Russian Icons


Gordon Lankton,
Founder & Creator of the museum
Like Kirsten Powers did earlier this month, the Museum of Russian Icons is retracting what it said in the recent article about them returning their special collection to Russia, at Russia's request. See previous entry.
They won't be returning them after all, at least not for now anyhow.

Museum refuses to return icons.
Russian artwork on loan is not subject to seizure, State Dept. tells curator

Icon exhibit staying put
Dispute has Russian curator going home empty-handed

Happy Tuesday of the 2nd week of Lent!  I'll be writing about my Lenten challenges next time.
