Andy Warhol Turn Down

Found this on The Hundreds blog. It says:
"Dear Mr. Warhol,

Last week our committee on the Museum Collections held its first meeting of the fall season and had a chance to study your drawing entitle 'Shoe' which you so generously offered as a gift to the museum.

I regret that I must report to you that the committee decided, after careful consideration, that they aught not to accept it for our collection.

Let me explain that because of our severely limited gallery and storage space we must turn down many gifts offered, since we feel it is not fair o accept as a gift a work which may be shown only infrequently."

I wondered what art work was accepted to be shown frequently enough to take up they're storage space? Stay inspired.
