Question: Londonderry Fine Arts Center LFAC is a museum dedicated

Londonderry Fine Arts Center ( LFAC) is a museum dedicated to collecting and displaying works of Vermont artists. It acquires works of art primarily from direct donations and from income provided by permanent endowments. It does not, however, capitalize its art collection and does not recognize revenue when art works are contributed to the collection. LFAC protects and cares for its art works and has a policy of using the proceeds from the sale of collection items solely to acquire new works of art. LFAC charges all expenses to four programs: curatorial and exhibition, art acquisition, edu-cation and public service, and administration. Make journal entries to record the following transac-tions and events.
1. Donor A contributed several works by N. Rockwell, which had an estimated fair value of $ 30,000 and were accepted by LFAC for its permanent collection.
2. Donor B contributed a painting not done by a Vermont artist. The donor agreed that LFAC would hold it for sale (it had an estimated fair value of $ 2,000) and use the proceeds to enhance its art collection.
3. LFAC sold the non- Vermont artist painting, referred to in the previous transaction, for $ 2,100. It used the proceeds, together with $ 1,900 of its unrestricted resources, to acquire several seri-graphs by H. Shokler.
