(Atlantic) The Atlantic Public Library is receiving a financial boost.
Atlantic City Councilman Dana Halder made the announcement at Wednesday’s City Council meeting.
“Former Atlantic resident, Richard Hellman has passed away and left 51-pieces of artwork to the Atlantic Public Library and five-pieces to the Danish Immigrant Museum,” stated Halder. “The artwork is in California and the Library has the right to do what ever they want with them.”
Halder says the Library plans to sell the artwork and take the proceeds. He says the appraised value is around $175,000 and they are hoping to receive 60-percent of the artwork’s appraised value.
