NYT Piece – Where Are All the Bob Ross Paintings?

From the New York Times:

The Smithsonian also acquired fan letters sent to Mr. Ross, including some written after he died of lymphoma in 1995 at 52. “These letters help reveal the significant impact Ross has had on diverse individuals and communities, helping them to express and feel better about themselves,” Mr. Jentsch said.

The paintings and other objects officially became part of the museum’s permanent collection on March 22.

Best part is at the end when, in an interview, Ross says his paintings will never be in The Smithsonian.
