A remarkable open letter by a musician, educator, defacto curator of memorials at MDPCircle

OPEN LETTER TO THE DIRECTOR OF THE VIRGINIA MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

"We are curious to hear how a museum can operate in this space. Your goals are preservation, while our goals are progress. Can these two efforts overlap? You will want artifacts to remain unchanged so that they can be catalogued and have monetary value assigned to them. We celebrate change. We love how the plinth changes almost daily. We love that we cannot predict what artists, or musicians will appear and spontaneously make music."
