ART: Turkey Wing

Berenson, Ruth
July 1975
National Review;7/4/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 25, p727
The article focuses on the deterioration of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The lawns and trees in the museum have been replaced by concrete structures; and the monumental entrance hall has turned into an airport lounge, complete with gift shops, information desks, and waiting-room furniture. The Lehman Wing of the museum has been opened. The construction of the Lehman Wing had provoked opposition from the beginning. Efforts were made by lovers of Central Park, New York, to halt the museum's master plan as a whole and the Lehman Wing in particular.
