Silence from Princeton

I am beginning to wonder if the Director of the Princeton University Art Museum is trying to send me a message. I have completed a research article on a specific Athenian pot-painter and would like to mention the full (and documented) collecting history of a pot-sherd in Princeton --- but there is silence.

Only last year (2012) I wrote:
University museums should set an example for the highest ethical standards. Unethical acquisition policies should have no place in such places of learning. ... there are serious concerns that the museum was tardy in making a public statement about the most recent return, and that when it did so it failed to make key information available. This apparent lack of transparency only serves to damage the very trust that Princeton's museum director claims is important in his institution.
But perhaps Princeton has yet to learn any lessons from the Medici Conspiracy.
