Sad news out of Brockton, where the Fuller has decided to suspend a program that placed art in empty storefront windows. In two years, the museum worked with more than 30 artists and installed art in dozens of places, according to Wyona Lynch-McWhite.
It's worth noting that there's still money around to do the program, about $25,000 from the city of Brockton. But Lynch-McWhite wants to expand "Art in the Windows" and pay the artists and she can't do that without more money. She said the museum needs about $75,000-a-year to do the program the right way.
"Just because we started the project underfunded doesn't mean we want to continue it that way," Lynch-McWhite told me today. "If I only wanted to do donated work or high school work, I suppose I could continue."
She noted that the program is suspended, not over for good. Find her the money and "we'd be happy to pick it up again," Lynch-McWhite said.
