Brain Drain Alert (although is Cleveland really better than Ottawa?)


Last Friday David Franklin, the now ex-deputy director and chief curator at the National Gallery got named head honcho at the Cleveland Museum Art. While the Cleveland Museum Art is most definitely head, hands and shoulders above the National Gallery, I'm not so certain that I would say the same thing about Cleveland vs. Ottawa, although it truly is in my mind a battle for the bottom.

The Wall Street Journal's take, ArtInfo.com mentions the 2008 tempest in a teapot about some deleted emails, and the rest of the articles about the appointment via Google News.
