Alice Walton, speaking in Bentonville, AR
Chalk one up for Alice Walton, one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.
This just in from the Tennessean‘s Heidi Hall:
The Tennessee Supreme Court has rejected the state’s latest move to keep Fisk University’s art collection in Nashville year-round. In January, Attorney General Bob Cooper appealed a lower court’s ruling that opened the door for Fisk to enter into an art-sharing agreement with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark.
Cooper’s office just sent me this terse comment:
We are disappointed that the Court decided not to review the case.
On its website, Fisk University has triumphantly announced:
This puts an end to the multi-year legal controversy about whether or not Fisk has the right to share the Stieglitz Collection with Crystal Bridges….The case will now go back to the Davidson County Chancery Court for Fisk to establish certain administrative matters pertaining to the care of the art.
