The AIA has again shown its true colors. It's unclear what bylaws the St. Louis Society actually violated, but it is clear the Society has become the victim of the fanaticism of the AIA for the "crime" of selling well-provenanced artifacts for the benefit of archaeology. And what of that declining number of wealthy AIA supporters who believe the AIA has said its "okay" to collect well-provenance pieces? It's finally time for them to recognize the AIA is unalterably opposed to all collecting, not just the collecting of unprovenanced artifacts. No more checks for these fanatics.
