What ’08 Holds In Store for The Smithsonian


We know for a fact that you weren’t going to be able to enjoy yourself at the New Years party you were planning on attending unless you knew the whole the scoop on what lies ahead for The Smithsonian in 2008, following a very uncertain year full of hirings, firings and too many financial troubles to keep track of. Well, thanks to Robin Pogrebin over at the NY Times, we have “Three Museums Seek Answers to Tough Questions,” which also has some info on the Whitney and The Dia Foundation, but mostly serves to fill in any and all gaps to the mess The Smithsonian Institute is still trying to dig its way out from under. So what answer will you have in the end about what’s in store for them in 2008? Well, pretty much just a whole lot more uncertainty.
