Brian Frye on Selling Art

Brian Frye, associate professor of law at the University of Kentucky, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss his forthcoming article Against Deaccessioning Rules. In this article, Frye questions the bases for professional ethical rules that prohibit charitable art museums from selling works of art. Going further, as a matter of corporate governance, he explores situations in which museum directors may have a fiduciary duty to sell art, especially if doing so means the difference for the institution’s survival.
