Here’s an interesting way to deal with a serious art problem. The Fresno Metropolitan Museum is bankrupt and must sell the collection to satisfy its debts. But Jeanne and Michael Adams didn’t want six of his father Ansel Adams’s prints to be sold. They sued to have the prints returned and won–with a catch:
The photos being returned are of Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and Lone Pine in California, and Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona. Adams’ attorney Rene Lastreto says the photographer never intended for private collectors to hang those prints in their living rooms. In exchange, the family will give the museum other Ansel Adams prints of equal value for the October art auction.
