Hilarious dust up at the De Young

Art Review: Chihuly at the De Young by Kenneth Baker

SF Chron, Saturday, July 5, 2008

I can't remember getting so much entertainment out of an art review. The Bay Area's one and only big-time art critic takes on the masses. Personally, I think Kenneth Baker is a dinosaur, offering no insight or relevance for at least the last decade. But when he takes the tact that Chihuly's work "isn't art...but,...decoration..." and calls for the ousting of the De Young Director he really commits himself, which is rare for art writers. It's a given that Chihuly is to glass what Thomas Kincade is to paint, but I can't believe what a friggin snob Baker comes off as. Do yourself a favor and read the comments at the end of the article.
