This post was suggested by the Dec. 30, 2016, date of the
death in Nuremberg of mathematician Wolf Barth.  The first
image above is from a mathematics-related work by
John von Neumann discussed here on that date.

See also Wolf Barth in this journal for posts that largely
concern not the above Barth, but an artist of the same name.

Art Spaces (For Frank Sinatra and Janet Leigh)

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 12:42 PM

From The New York Times  today —

MoMA’s Makeover Rethinks the Presentation of Art

"The new design calls for more gallery space and a transformed
main lobby, physical changes that, along with the re-examination
of art collections and diversity, represent an effort to open up MoMA
and break down the boundaries defined by its founder, Alfred Barr.

'It’s a rethinking of how we were originally conceived,' Glenn D. Lowry,
the museum’s director, said in an interview at MoMA. 'We had created
a narrative for ourselves that didn’t allow for a more expansive reading
of our own collection, to include generously artists from very different
backgrounds.'"

Death on 9/11

Al Casey Dies at 89;
Early Jazz Guitarist

By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Published: Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2005

Al Casey, a guitarist whose playful acoustic rhythms and solos were a defining feature of Fats Waller’s band in the 1930’s and 1940’s, died on Sunday [9/11] in Manhattan. He was 89….

Mr. Casey played and recorded with Louis Armstrong in 1944 when both were recognized as leading jazz musicians in the Esquire magazine readers’ poll….

A 90th birthday celebration for Mr. Casey, scheduled for Thursday evening at St. Peter’s Church, 54th Street and Lexington Avenue, will now be his musical memorial service, open to the public.

That’s St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.

Janet's Tea Party

From October 5, 2004:
 

For Janet Leigh,
who died on Sunday, Oct. 3, 2004:
 

The Manchurian Candidate

MARCO — What's your last name?

ROSIE — Chaney.  I'm production assistant for a man named Justin who had two hits last season.  I live on 54th Street, a few doors from the Modern Museum of Art, of which I'm a "tea privileges" member,  no cream.  I live at 53 West 54th Street, apartment 3B.  Can you remember that?

MARCO —  Yes.

On the redesigned
Museum of Modern Art,
11 West 53rd Street:

"… the ultimate judgment will have to wait: Taniguchi himself told a MoMA curator who'd complimented him that considering the building without the art in it is like admiring the tea cup without the green tea. Next month the museum will have art on the walls and crowds in the galleries—and then the tea ceremony will begin."
