The MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, Ontario looks like it is drowning


Way back when The MacLaren Art Centre tried to make a very quick buck. Well it looks like the repercussions might actually sink them. In short order this week I have seen this job advertisement for a new director, this sophmoric press release about them hiring a new PR company. And now a thinly vieled plan to sell their collection. I think someone should just take 'em out back and shoot 'em, it'll at least put 'em out of their misery.

Start new, start fresh - something like the Scuderia Ferrari Art Centre.

[update March 9: I was wrong, it is not a thinly vieled plan to sell their collection. Their 'outreach collection' is art that was specifically purchased for rental, and apparently is separate from their permanent collection.]
