Jerry Saltz's open letter to MoMA's board urges a rejection of the current expansion design
. It just doesn't measure up to the standards we hold MoMA up to
... try again. Also, Michael Kimmelman at the Times was uncharacteristically cutting on the subject as well
... we shall see soon if critics mean anything to MoMA?
Paul Clay's interactive Leda and the Swan at the Portland Building opens today
Randy Gragg chimes in on the fate of the Portland building
. I disagree that photos would somehow fill the gaping hole in history a demolished Portland Building would leave. My extensive piece is coming soon but in general (like Randy) I think people are severely undervaluing the place making that the Portland Building brings to the downtown. Also, moving the beloved Portlandia sculpture anywhere else is naive. BTW Paul Clay's video installation at the Portland Building
looks promising and it opens today. It is a great reason to visit this embattled and flawed landmark soon.
Sculptors and designers, the possibilities of walking 3D printers
must be exciting.
