DCARTNEWS reader Shark chimes in with a very funny comment on the Flavin Retro at the NGA:
"I've always wondered: Have museums and collectors stocked up on replacement bulbs for their Flavin works?
What happens in a hundred years or so (a decade, even?) -- when nobody can find a flourescent tube?
PS: Shark's Prediction: Flavin won't even be a minor blip on the art history landscape. He and the likes of Donald Judd will be lucky to be footnotes.
(But Marfa [Santa Fe without the scenery] is nice this time of year!)"
