Barnes Foundation Move

The Barnes Foundation wants to move its world-renowned collection of art from the Philadelphia suburbs to the city. The gallery's eccentric founder, Dr. Albert C. Barnes, forbade the paintings to be moved after his death. Now the financially-strapped foundation that controls them is asking a court to approve a move. From member station WHYY in Philadelphia, Joel Rose reports.
