Re: the alexander calder family

Linda - Many newspaper articles agree with you. There are also many formal
gardens planted by Mrs. Barnes there in Lower Merion that could not be
replicated in the city. The Barnes has had problems with neighbors and finances for
years, though. S.

I think it would be a crying shame to move the Barnes Collection from the
Barnes Foundation facilities in Lower Merion. They are so beautifully displayed
and one can get "up close and personal" to the work. Linda

Linda and all - I took three first grade classes to the Philadelphia Museum
of Art just this past week and we ended our day there looking at the Calders
you mentioned. There has been talk recently of a Calder Museum on the Parkway,
as well as moving the Albert Barnes collection (Impressionists, African Art)
to this area also. Sandy J ---
