It will be interesting to see what the Paulina entrance art will be. At last summer’s presentation some of the proposed hanging art had its pitfalls – pigeon roosts, how to clean, etc. The presenter for one piece said the fiberglass medium could be powerwashed….no specifics about removing it first or just turning the water loose near the escalators. A comment was made on one proposed piece that contained cherubs which led to ‘showing more diversity’ in the cherubs.

Look out – cherubs have fallen into the diversity pit.
