I am very puzzled by Mr. Maldonado's misconception of the CAC. First, it is not a "museum", as defined in the dictionary. It doesn't collect, doesn't have a permanent collection, doesn't preserve and "hold in trust" art works. Mr. Maldonado also apparently is unfamiliar with the distinction between the terms "modern" and "contemporary". They refer to very different areas of visual arts. He also may not understand that the Contemporary Arts Center emphasizes the "S" in arts. Did he watch the CAC launch the "Urban Bush Women"? The play written and directed by Edward Albee in the CAC's main theater? The "Black Box " productions? Circus and experimental puppet events? And of course the music: opera, musical theater, jazz. I look forward to an explanation of the omissions.
