More on the "Footprints" saga: library says exhibit should've been renamed
Atlantic Yards Report
I have a long article in this week's Brooklyn Downtown Star about the controversy over the "Brooklyn Footprints" exhibition. And the library offers a fuller explanation for its actions, including an acknowledgement that the exhibition should've been renamed.
My article also explores the American Library Association's interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights regarding exhibitions, the difficulty of drawing the line between documentation and advocacy, and the interesting question of what pro-Atlantic Yards art might be.
