For a few months now, viewers of The Young and the Restless have been subjected to the once popular and beloved character of Sharon Collins Newman (Sharon Case) having decided to delve into an icky romance with her former father-in-law, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).

Seems like The Young and the Restless' Maria Arena Bell is showrunner by day and art saviour by night. The Los Angeles Times is reporting the showrunner has spared LA's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) from closing its doors for good.
