Re: “Atlanta Contemporary Art Center: Past, present, and future

For the record, I cannot claim any knowledge of the Contemporary prior fall 2000. I also want to make it clear that the director at that time, Helena Reckitt, was very generous to me and the students I brought to visit. I was quite fond her then and continue to be. Ms. Reckitt even hired me to give a series of three lectures on contemporary art topics, so in my own small way I became a part of the Contemporary’s programming. My comment at the end of the article that the “….last few shows before Stuart came on board being consistently disappointing” was an excerpt from a larger statement and not meant to be disparaging toward Ms. Reckitt in any way. There was a moment in 2005 when both the Contemporary and the small bookstore in back—which is all I knew NEXUS to be—seemed asphyxiated by lack of funding. That was the impetus for my comment.
