Or, who gets to say what sucks.
This past spring, local mom Emily posted to her family blog about her experience at the Milwaukee Art Museum (by the way, why is there no "Yes, MAM" campaign? It's right there!). Lots of people linked to her blog, lots of people in the art world mourned her ignorance, pitied her, patronized her, she became the subject of some debate - stop me if you've heard this one.
Anyway, same song, different tune just happened at the Walker in Minneapolis (thanks to Lisa for passing this on).
Things I thought were interesting:
It's just one guy's opinion.
People still go after his credentials.
The tone of the debate-conversation is a lot more civil than what I remember happening here.
Here's the link to the site as I first saw it.
Empathy is the hard part
