Dear ARTLURKER: I love and deeply respect both Paddy and Art Fag City, however her weblog really arrived late at her current critical position. Actually AFG first reported on the difficulty four weeks after I had opened the discussion by being the very first celebration in any media to publicly criticize the new Museum’s plans. I did so with a post by myself site executed the identical day the brand new York Times printed its September article (which had virtually reproduced the Museum’s press launch). In my entry I defined the problems as they had been later picked up by others and as they stay immediately. James Wagner. http://jameswagner.com/2009/09/new_museum_commits_s.html
Upper Eastside Garden’s Camp Basel is sadly canceled by the town as a consequence of complaints by local residents regardless of zoning legal guidelines which permit for such occasions.
