Indiana Library Missing 4 Paintings Reports The city’s library has raised nearly $450,000 in the sale of its art collection, even though four original watercolors it once owned can’t be found.

The Michigan City Public Library acquired the paintings by Julius Moessel in 1945. Two have been missing since at least 1990 and the others since before 2001, but the library staff does not know what happened to them, Director Don Glossinger said.
