I attended the museum membership's preview yesterday and also watched this video, which provides great insight into what I consider to be the "emperor's new clothes" salesmanship to which the fine art establishment seems so susceptible. For all its 21st century credentials and relevance to the collections it houses, what I remember most about it is the sense of relief I felt upon passing through the glass doors into the the Cass Gilbert space, which always has and still does provide a gracious, elegant and memorable backdrop for the art of any period.
