Late Again, Late Again, in your reporting
We in Philly Love It!
I took my time because it is dull and an amazing embarrassment to a city that has a rather awesome collection of museums.
If Philly's civic body can't see the problem then it's obvious WHY the Barnes hasn't been saved at its original location.
It's really nothing to gloat about, it is a sad, sad situation... why not move Chinati to Houston or The Lightning Field to Storm King or move Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin East to the top of Tate Modern? The type of context at the Barnes is so rare it should be preserved. Not everything needs to be a city museum, sometimes we should celebrate inconvenience in art rather than its latest palace.
