Can Detroit's Art Museum Be Saved?

Can Detroit's Art Museum Be Saved? | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it

It’s heartbreaking to live in a country where art is expendable. I couldn’t shake that thought ....

Ken Feltman's insight:

Art is a civilization's highest attainment. Military victories, journeys of exploration, advances in technology: All these achievements fail to give the full measure of a culture. Art is the great leveler. Skill and genius are consistent through the centuries.

 

The architects of the Detroit Institute of Art's buildings seemed to anticipate the collection that would be displayed there. The result is close to perfection. If we permit Detroit's collection to be dispersed, that will say as much about us today as the museum's collection says about the wonder and brilliance of humanity's creative past.
