[BKARTS] WOID #XIII-36. Taking charge



According to a recent article in the Times-Picayune  
http://www.nola.com/newslogs/tporleans/index.ssf?/mtlogs/nola_tporleans
/archives/2005_09.html#075597,
about thirty staff members from the New Orleans Museum of Art are 
holed up in the Museum building. The number includes some family 
members as well. In the absence of the Director and Assistant Director 
they have refused FEMA's orders to evacuate and abandon the artworks. 
Apart from a few large sculptures left outside, the collection is safe.
 
May the Angel with the Arquebuse (Bolivian, late XVIIth c.) stand over 
them.
