Prominent Figure in “WellesleyGate” Resigns

While the investigation continues into the case of the “missing” multimillion dollar Leger painting which vanished from the stewardship of Wellesley College, a possible casualty of the debacle has resigned to “pursue other opportunities.”

David Mickenberg, the executive director of the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College, has left the position which he’d held for seven years.  Mickenberg had no comment regarding his resignation.

Woman and Child, ” the Fernand Leger painting which went missing on Mickenberg’s watch, may have been thrown out in the trash.  It is also possible the painting was stolen.  And while the vanishing act is still under investigation, the College has already received approximately $3 million from Traveler’s Insurance.

College representatives released an official statement regarding Mickenberg’s departure, but did not respond to questions.
