One Response to Stolen

    In case you don’t know what this sticker is in reference to… it’s about the controversial move of The Barnes Foundation from Merion to Philadelphia.

    The irony of course, is that the image itself was stolen to make the sticker. That, coupled with the probability that the sticker was probably NOT made by a resident of Merion, and that it is stickered all over the city (vandalizing signs and lightposts everywhere–this was on a construction fence near the new Barnes) makes me laugh every time I see it.

    The source of the image is Henri Matisse’s “Madras Rouge” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madras_Rouge)

    Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer’s “complete coverage” section on The Barnes Foundation, and it’s controversial move from Lower Merion to Philadelphia: http://www.philly.com/philly/entertainment/museums/144401855.html
