Plan in Place by Judge Lets Berkshire Museum Sell Artwork

A judge in Boston has approved a plan for the cash strapped Berkshire Museum to sell dozens of pieces of art, including works by Norman Rockwell. 

Under the agreement reached by the museum and the Massachusetts Attorney General's office, Rockwell's "Shuffleton's Barbershop" will be sold to another U.S. museum.

The rest of the artwork will be sold off until the museum raises $55 million in proceeds. 

Museum officials say the sale is the only option it has to keep its doors open.
