San Antonians lost a major piece of public art recently when Mark di Suvero removed his mammoth Iroquois from in front of the San Antonio Museum of Art. The artist had loaned the piece with the understanding that ex-director George Neubert would raise the funds to buy it, but it sat for 5 years without any action. Said di Suvero, “I’ve been a major supporter of sculpture parks throughout my career. But it seems to me that this museum really isn’t devoted to living artists.” Ouch!
