Check out CultureGrrl’s August 10th and 16th posts: “Mr. Populism”: My Q&A with Brooklyn’s Arnold Lehman- Part I and II: http://www.artsjournal.com/culturegrrl/.  Arts blogger Rosenbaum, author of CultureGrrl, responds to NYT’s August 5th critique  “Sketching a Future for Brooklyn” by Robin Pogrebin.  Although Rosenbaum is not enamored with everything Brooklyn Museum does, she provides balanced coverage.  By interviewing Lehman she exposes the biased position of Pogrebin’s article and allows Lehman, the museum’s director, to address criticisms.

In the interviews Lehman discusses the museum’s conservation endeavors and plans to reinstall the permanent collection to reflect the world’s history of cultural contact.  And for those of you interested in Brooklyn Museum’s involvement with the Bravo reality television program Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, Rosenbaum briefly discusses the jurying process.

By the way, the work of the Bravo’s winning artist Abdi Farah, is currently on exhibit at Brooklyn Museum.
