The art collection at the DIA is estimated to be valued at $2.5 billion but, as The Washington Post reported, “the exact value is impossible to determine because it is rare for so many valuable works to hit the auction block.

They would probably get much less than expected because as is said that many valuable works don’t go up for sale at one time, so there just wouldn’t be the money available to pay normal market prices for all of the collection.

It would be a fire sale which is appropriate; Detroit is burning down around the city government’s ears while they fight over the ashes.
