Saving art in Haiti after the quake.


There is an interesting article in the New York Times global edition, about private american institutions and government officials trying to salvage what they can form the quake. The article describes the difficulty of saving art in a ravaged country, and the cost of it. It is interesting to note that one of the person that was quoted in the article said that the reason that the americans were there was because of all the looting that occurred in Iraq after the fall of the dictator and how badly she felt that nothing had been done to prevent this.
