Looks like the fate of the Corcoran Gallery is still up in the air. I find that I’m a little emotionally involved due to taking painting classes there in my youth and seeing so many great art shows there over the years. Just read the suggestion of a new Board of Trustees which I suppose gets my vote if mismanagement was the factor. Can’t help but relate the situation with that of the Barnes Foundation seeing how the courts are deciding who gets the 2 billion dollars worth of art.
So the battle is over and it’s sad that they’re no longer a stand alone entity and that a bunch of teachers were sacked. The up side… since GWU is a client and they have absorbed the art school, I now do website and marketing work for the Corcoran.
