Bone To Pick

November 20, 1994

I'm sorry that Christopher Knight is tired of lead, bone, glass and the like as art materials ("This Critic Has a Bone to Pick," Nov. 6).

It seems like just a few years ago that it was at least acceptable to put pencil to paper or paint to canvas, as long as it was done with honesty and passion. Now we are being told we have to throw away our clothing, pedestals and rust and look for new materials to please the jaded critic.

While I too deplore cliche, do we really need to be given a list of forbidden materials? All this time I thought the message was more important than the media.
