OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Officials at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in Ocean Springs say a broken-down chiller threatens to damage an irreplaceable collection.

WLOX TV reports (https://bit.ly/XQDvAP ) that the chiller is part of a heating and air conditioning system that helps control the temperature and humidity at the museum. A temporary solution is in place, but the museum needs money to permanently fix the problem.

Museum Executive Director Rosemary Roosa said the estimated coast is at least $180,000.

Museum leaders have asked the Ocean Springs Board of Aldermen to help cover half of the cost. The museum relies on admissions, membership fees, donations and grants to operate.
