Readers respond to the Harvard Crimson's support for the proposed Western Ave Art Building

The Harvard Crimson :: Opinion :: Bringing Art To Allston

RE: Bringing Art To Allston
What you have missed is that the Allston residents are taxpayers in Boston and you and Harvard are not. Harvard must have it's IMP application approved by a city agency which is the Mayor who answers to constituents. Telling residents that they are effectively wrong either in reasoning or taste is not a good position to begin the negotiation. Use your words carefully or you will cause the University more cost in the long run.

RE: Bringing Art To Allston
In fact, "the best of" the University's collection will not be displayed in Allston during the renovation, but at the Sackler. (See the Crimson article of 3/10/06, and HUAM's press release of 5/15/06.)
