Arts Attrition at Ground Zero
March 29th, 2007
After the International Freedom Center and the Drawing Center were chased out of the plans for Ground Zero for being insufficiently patriotic, the Times reported earlier this week that the Signature Theater Company will not be included due to issues surrounding “cost and complicated logistics.”
Today the Times laments the loss of another cultural institution at the site.
“The only momentum for the arts at ground zero is the momentum of attrition, a long downward spiral from a moment of genuine, and perhaps foolish, optimism.”By Joshua Brustein on March 29, 2007, 6:37 am
