Culture Wars: Is MoMA's plan to hang prints...

2009_2_momaad.jpgIs MoMA's plan to hang prints in the Atlantic Avenue–Pacific Street subway station an implication that Brooklyn doesn't have the resources to quench its thirst for culture? No, but in an amusing tongue-in-cheek story on MoMA's campaign, the Brooklyn Paper dubs the move a "full-frontal assault" on the Brooklyn Museum: "The ad campaign is part of the museum's desperate attempt to attract local visitors to pay its hefty $20 Gaphattan admission price as international tourism cools off amid the economic nosedive." Harsh! Can't Brooklynites stare at soup cans in peace? [BK Paper]
