Court to MoCA - It's OK to throw away Buchel's Crap.
"We appreciate the thoughtful consideration that went into this complex case, and we are pleased with the court's decision," Mass MoCA director Joseph C. Thompson said. "We've exercised great care in dealing with these materials, and we are happy that the judge has granted us the right to continue to do so."
I wrote to the art critic at the NYTimes last week after she started whining about how badly abused Buchel had been by MoCA. The jist of my letter was that I was looking forward to a judge applying logic to the case rather than the sycophancy that she was displaying. She never wrote back.
I think I am going to have to send an official "gloat" to her later today.
And now, if rumor is correct, MoCA is just going to throw all the assembled junk that is covered in tarps out to the curb. It is a fitting end to this whole mess.
(I hear there is a really cool wooden bar in the lot. I'll take it if nobody else has dibs!)
UPDATE: The NYTimes has more here
. The only difference in the articles is that the Times chose to quote the Dean of the Yale Art Department rather than the Dean of Mass Mayors and local art critic John Barrett, III.
