WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — The Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington has lost its national accreditation and may not be able to borrow artwork from other museums after it began selling paintings to pay debts.
The American Alliance of Museums said Wednesday that collections cannot be treated as disposable assets.
The alliance says its accrediting commission voted unanimously to revoke the museum's accreditation. The group says the museum's actions violate museum standards and ethics.
