Aye of the Beholder


Perhaps Mr. Lackner should do his homework before he calls the “Chromatic Gate,” by Herbert Bayer, a mediocre piece of work. Mr. Bayer is a highly regarded artist around the world, having worked as a student in the Bauhaus Group under such known artists as Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. His influence in a multitude of mediums is widely known. Once restored, the true vibrancy of the piece will again be seen. It should have happened sooner. To place it somewhere like De la Guerra Plaza would be a travesty.
