“A Moral Blight”


“A Moral Blight”: Writing in Bloomberg, the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg runs a scathing review of Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton’s Crystal Bridges Museum, which opened last month in Bentonville, Arkansas. He calls it “a moral tragedy, very much like the corporation that provided Walton with the money to build a billion-dollar art museum during a terrifying recession.” Over at the Wall Street Journal, Judith Dobrzynski focuses more on the art than the moral implications, noting that while the early 20th-century works are strong, later works are “mostly mediocre.”
