There's a nice quote by new director Michael Govan that I like so much I thought I'd post it here:
“The thing about California is that it does have less of a sense of history and precedent,” Mr. Govan said. “So a new idea isn’t immediately measured against all the other examples of the way things are done. It’s taken as an idea in general. And I think if you talk to artists here, that openness is very present.”I think you'd find that if you talked to a lot of the theater artists out here, too.
Incidentally, there's also a LACMA article worth noting in the LATimes; check out the image of the proposed Jeff Koons sculpture. It's not exactly Uberorgan, but we'll leave that one to the Getty, I suppose.
