    To accompany a major retrospective exhibition, The Dallas Museum of Art is
    > seeking video footage of people reacting to Henry
    > Moore sculptures in their communities. We are interested
    > in students, art experts, museum workers, or the "man on the street." The
    > video should be
    > brief (not more than 5 minutes)responses to their Moore, and questions
    > as: What is your personal connection to a Moore sculpture? What do you
    > think about "mainstream art"
    > vs. "the avant garde?" How do you think critics influence what is
    > art? What do you think are the issues an artist struggles with when
    > commissioned to do public art? What if a public sculpture switched places
    > with another public sculpture--do you think the meaning would also change?
    > (Or anything else you would like to say about Moore sculptures)
    > If you would like to participate, send us your 5 minute video and
    > information about
    > the interviewee and the Moore sculpture that is in your community.
    > Your video does not have to be perfect, we can edit here and we
    > will digitize and possibly add to our Henry Moore website. The exhibition
    > here in February of 2001, so we need the videos by December of 2000 at the
    > latest.
    > Thanks for your help.
