Re: “Baton Bob arrested in Midtown following 'verbal altercation'

Bob's response from his personal facebook page:

"First of all, the atl police officer that responded to the incident thru security has been very respectful and gracious to me even in handcuffs. So, the situation escalated from a complaint from a security officer in the area and for some reason she rolled up on me like she didn't know who I was and like I had not been there before. For them to call police to come to intervene was not necessary. So, out of it, because of my fury, the Atlanta police officer did not understand the elements of the situation, so he was trying to do his job, respectfully and arrested my ass!!!!!!!!! I'll be out tomorrow so look out for my show at 14th and Peachtree. So now I'm waiting to be transported so I can sign my own bond and get the hell out of here. I want to verify, that the Atlanta police was respectful to me considering the circumstances. See you when I see you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Re: “Roti's Living Walls mural in southwest Atlanta painted over by community members without a permit

Wow, Living Walls was just awarded the Atlanta Downtown Design Excellence Award by the Downtown Improvement District & Central Atlanta Progress this week--so strange how differently people react to public art.

Re: “High anxiety

I personally was thrilled to see the Allure of the Automobile exhibition taking place at the High. Ron Labaco (now sadly gone from the High as well) had a vision for bringing design-based exhibitions to the museum and the Auto show paired with the gorgeous retrospective of European contemporary design was a huge step forward for the High's Design & Decorative Arts department.

Why did I love the Auto show? Not because I love cars. I know nothing about cars. But, I do know that when I went to the exhibition, the galleries were filled with an incredibly diverse crowd--the likes of which I have never seen before in 15 years of visiting in the High. Should a museum present works that push their visitors to see something new? Yes. But, should a museum alienate and speak only to the few who have had the opportunity to study art history, architecture, design history? No.

The High certainly has its faults, but no institution can be all things to all people, all the time. Stuart above points out very well that there are many other organizations and institutions that can focus more narrowly on contemporary work or niche audiences. The High museum is a generalist museum that has done well (especially in a very poor economy) to reach such a broad audience and establish new relationships that will further its reach fro years to come.
