It’s still raining in New York.  In other news:

The State Senate thinks DIAs’ collection is important, but less important than summer vacay.  Over on Bloomberg, Virginia Postrel makes a pretty good case for why the collections should be sold off.

Richard Prince posted a video of him burning a “Canal Zone” painting, one of the pieces at issue in the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against him by photographer Patrick Cariou.  It may or may not be the actual painting….

Sotheby’s pulled 10 pieces from the Latin American auction that took place in May out of authenticity concerns.
