Recently I attended the Modern Masters show
at the Denver Art Museum. Before I went, I emailed them asking a question about tickets and also this question:
Is there a list of the works in the show?
And I received this reply:
Unfortunately we don't provide full lists of works in the exhibit for security reasons. I'm sure you understand!
Actually, I don't understand. Why don't they? Do they think that the lack of a publicly available list of works in a show is going to stop an International Art Thief?
Mr. Bigglesworth would like a Van Gogh for the lair.
Well, there is a show currently in Denver that might have a Van Gogh, but we just can't be sure.
Did you check their facebook page for a list of works in the show?
Of course, but nothing there.
What kind of schmucks do you think they are? They don't tweet that kind of information.
The director, she is a worthy foe, quite cunning.
RISD just doesn't hand out MFAs to anyone.
Perhaps we will have to kidnap her and persuade
her to talk.
Why don't you just go to the show and make your own list?
You really just don't understand the evil business.
