Quebec City, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Palm Beach, Wilmington, New Orleans, Memphis, San Juan, Colorado Springs and Sacremento


It appears that Quebec City is getting giddy about an upcoming Fernando Botero exhibit. Unfortunately it was organized and is being toured by Art Services International hence the itinerary above (reads sorta like a cross between a semi-pro basketball team, and some weird vaudeville circuit, don'tcha think?). They are the same company which organized the exhibit at the Notre Dame Basillica here in town, which made money for Clear Channel Communications.

Personally, I would like to know how much the exhibit is going to cost the Musee National des Beaux Arts du Quebec, and what other exhibits they might be planning on getting from ASI. And as an aside, if John Porter is relying on ASI to get 500,000 people in his museum, then I suddenly have much less interest in him running the Musee des beaux arts de Montreal. On the other hand, if he succeeds in scoring the Abu Ghraib paintings by Botero, then I will retract the previous sentence. But judging by description from the catalog, I doubt we will have the opportunity to see them live .
