Corcoran public meeting on Thursday
Corcoran thinking of selling landmarked building, moving"), is holding a public meeting on Thursday night, at 6:30pm, to discuss the state of the institution.
You can pre-register to attend the meeting at the Corcoran's site.
In the last couple days there have been follow up articles that are worth reading:
- "Experts cast doubt on Corcoran Gallery of Art reuse," Washington Business Journal
- "Another Museum Mulls Pulling Up Stakes," Wall Street Journal
- "The high cost of change at the Corcoran," Washington Post
Interestingly, they are at least holding a public meeting (I bet it will be chaos).
When GWU announced plans to create a "museum of Washington history" ("UPD headquarters to become D.C. history museum" from the GWU Hatchet) which is something of interest not just to the university but the entire community, I suggested to them multiple times that they open the development process up, to more stakeholders and other voices. They blew off the suggestion.
