The Los Angeles Country Museum of Art will be home to the exhibition The Arts and Crafts Movement in Europe and America, 1880-1920: Design for the Modern World from December 19, 2004 to March 20, 2005. Curated by Wendy Kaplan (author of "The Art that is Life": the Arts & Crafts Movement in America, 1875-1920, the exhibition includes nearly 300 objects form England, Scotland, Ireland, the United States, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Designers represented include William Morris, Henry Van de Velde and Josef Hoffmann. An illustrated catalog accompanies the show and a conference is planned for January 29, 2005.

After closing in Los Angeles, the exhibition moves to the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington and the Cincinnati Art Museum.

This exhibit is really fabulous. It includes fantastic examples of metalware, furniture, textiles, jewelry, pottery, lighting, text, etc, from many countries.

The exhibit ends in Los Angeles this Sunday. If you are here and haven't seen it, it is very worthwhile. Admission is free after 5 PM, and parking is free after 7 PM.

Coincident with the closing of this exhibit, a controversy has erupted over the ominous announcement of the abrupt resignation ("retirement") of the Museums Director who has held that post for the past 10 years. Two widely divergent articles appeared in the L A Times this [gone from the internet - la-me-lacma4apr04,1,2433116.story?ctrack=1&cset=true] and [gone from the internet - la-et-lacma5apr05,1,7524311.story?ctrack=2&cset=true]. If the interpretation in the Tuesday column is accurate, the Monday article looks like an attempt to put a good face on a bad situation. You can read the full text of each on the Times web site and decide for yourselves which side of the issue to accept, if either. I have no personal knowledge of the particulars beyond what is in the paper.

Given links result in the following response: "The story you requested is available only to registered members." Might you be able to provide a condensation of the salient points?

Strange - they come up for me, and I am not a "registered member." Did any one else get access or find themselves blocked?

It asked for login/register. I have been registered a long time but probably cleaned out the cookies sometime so I just logged in. There is no problem with registering - it's free and I never received spam.

Hmmm. Either I don't remember or my wife did without mentioning it. Nonetheless, the articles are lengthy, and since there is controversy, calling attention to it is one thing, but I don't think it wise to risk being perceived as putting a spin on it by selective editing or paraphrasing. It could put the Forums in an embarrasing position for a moderator to appear to be taking sides, however unwittingly. If anyone is really interested, registration is simple and benign, as has been pointed out in the previous post.
