SF Asian Art Museum on Shaky Ground

Asian Art Museum & School Bus, originally uploaded by deanv41.

I'm bothered by news that the SF Asian Art Museum's finances are in dire straits. It's one of the city's finest cultural institutions, a mighty player in the Asian art world, but unfortunately fairly deserted most visits. Attendance at the wonderful Shanghai-related events over the past year seemed high, eespecially the Macha parties.
I wonder if The City could consider making it free to enter and changing the financial structure to help save it. I know times are tough, but San Francisco cannot afford to lose this vital link to our Pacific heritage.
