Greening Of A Lib

October 24, 1987

The recently closed "Machine Age" exhibit and the "Arts and Crafts in America" exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art are remarkable more for their illumination of current social realities than for their displays of former technological styles.

Crowds of new-age, new wave, beatnik-flavored white and/or Oriental cosmopolitans fawning over capitalist artifacts built by the workers of a despised Middle America.

The only black and brown faces I saw were those of janitors and guards, and they were all black and brown.

It's enough to make an ex-liberal sick.
