It was my pleasure to read Dan Sullivan's "Are We Creating Mausoleums Filled With Starving Artists?" (May 24). It is so rare that anyone speaks out on behalf of artists, much less mentions what these artists need just to survive. We recognize the importance of institutions like the Music Center. But we cannot honestly revel in rhetoric about a "Cultural Boom" and pat ourselves on the back for having arrived artistically without nurturing those artists who are being presented in these institutions or those artists, particularly Los Angeles artists, who will provide the future works that will be showcased.

Re "As LACE Shifts Course, Rifts Grow Wider," by Suzanne Muchnic, Oct. 2: As a former artist board member and programming committee chair, I object to the accusation made by Peter Norton that "the responsibility for the decline of LACE in the past rests squarely on the shoulders of artists." Norton hasn't done his homework. The artists and community members that have challenged the present administration have all at one time or another served on LACE's board and/or on the artist committees.

President Bush will not ask again for Senate approval of Joy Silverman, his nominee to be ambassador to Barbados, and instead announced today he will make her a trustee of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Bush, bowing to pressure from senators who claimed Silverman was not qualified for the ambassador's post, was taking the action at the request of the New York fund-raising organization, his spokesman said. Silverman was nominated by Bush last year to be U.S.

The former chief judge of New York state's highest court pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity Wednesday to federal charges that he tried to extort money from his former lover. Sol Wachtler, 62, who resigned as chief judge of the New York State Court of Appeals after his Nov. 7 arrest by FBI agents, appeared before U.S. District Judge Anne Thompson, who set a June 1 trial date. Wachtler's lawyer, Charles Stillman, has said that his client suffered from a "major psychiatric illness."

Can anyone in the Los Angeles art community tell me, or explain to anybody, why the 4th Street Bridge was sprayed with caustic gas in order to keep people from viewing Survival Research Laboratories' kinetic-cum-junk performance on Aug. 11? The performance was staged within view from a public bridge. Anyone who chose to be on that bridge had the right to view anything seen from that vantage. For any "art" group to mark off public space like some dog or cat spraying its territory seems both ludicrous, short sighted, and perhaps, even if SRL doesn't seem concerned, illegal!

Labeling the case "bizarre and aberrational," a federal judge Thursday sentenced Sol Wachtler, the former chief judge of New York state, to 15 months in prison for terrorizing his former lover and her teen-age daughter. Wachtler, 63, a pillar of Republican politics who had been regarded as a potentially strong challenger to Gov. Mario M. Cuomo in next year's gubernatorial election, resigned from the bench in November when the charges were brought.
