Friday’s lurid Examiner front page put a focus on art in the mayoral campaign

It doesn’t mention it happened in 1977 & he has said he’s sorry many times (though it is in the story) It also makes it seem as if he is pocketing nearly a million dollars when a lot of the money will go towards fabricating almost 60 sculptures & a working clock

Leland Yee put up a petition calling for the contract to be cancelled

Last summer, I saw the proposals at the Contemporary Jewish Museum

I liked Catherine Wagner Landmark piece (which was chosen) and thought it would go well with Mildred Howard’s Wayfaring art (Otterness was chosen)

SFMTA & the Arts Commission say they didn’t know about the film You’d think they would have googled the artists – there was a similar uproar in NYC in May

(this is a piece attacking him as much for his politics as the dog film by a conservative New Criterion writer)

If you enter his name into google news there is much more including Susan Sarandon loves his sculpture

He will have a slide in a playground (unless there is a campaign for mayor in Yonkers)
