In Europe, museums are going high tech in seeking restoration and expansion funds. (Story's unanswered question: how did British painting in need of $31K in restoration get in such bad condition in a mere 40 years?)

"When Sir Arthur Stockdale Cope painted 'Naval Officers of World War I' in 1921, little could he have imagined that the National Portrait Gallery in London would one day solicit the public for £20,000 to restore it. Even less could he have imagined that those funds would come in part via smartphones." -- Hannah Olivennes, the New York Times
