In statements issued Thursday, February 4, Jehuda Reinharz attempt to convince the public that the Rose Museum would not be “sold,” and that his initial statements were not only taken out of context, but admittedly regrettable. Rasky Baerlein Strategic Communications, a noted and costly PR firm, has been hired in a time of financial crisis to dull the resistance among faculty, students, and the broader art world.

“We have a successful track record and are renown in managing the media process, influencing public opinion and controlling the situation to our clients’ advantage.”

What a welcome challenge for a student body not only organized but informed. Transparency was promised by Jehuda Reinharz in all further conversations about the fate of the Rose Art Museum. With mismanaged finances, placating appearances, and now, the support of Rasky Baerlein, the time has come for visual resistance.

Artist Steve Miller, with the ongoing support of students organized by Brian Friedberg and Liz McDonough, present Speak Clearly: An Intervention for the Rose Art Museum, across the campus of Brandeis University, beginning at 5:00pm, Tuesday, February 10, 2009
