Brandeis’s announcement that it would sell the collection to help shore up the university’s finances raises a thicket of legal questions about what the university can do with money and art donated to the Rose, especially pieces given with the restriction that they be displayed publicly.

„We can be angry, but the question is, can we save it?“ said Jonathan Novak, a museum overseer and a Los Angeles art dealer who graduated from Brandeis in 1975 and has given art works and money over the years. „Had I had any idea when I donated work that there was a chance they would be sold to benefit the university, I never would have donated them.“
