Modernartnotes walks into WSJ art trap

Ever the arts enthusiast in search of a common man constituency, Tyler Green wrote an op-ed for the WSJ that gamely proposes to take the Whitney Biennial on the road, to the people–in the “hinterlands.”
And what could be wrong with that? Besides going to bat for the perennially controversial-at-best biennial? Besides coming off as populist and condescending toward your biennial’s flyover audience?
Well, there’s playing right into the middle of the WSJ‘s own FoxNews-like editorial slant, for one. Tyler shouldn’t be surprised when the comments he received were at odds with the crusty, Moral Majority-form letters the Journal itself published. Tyler lobbed one over the net, and the Journal‘s know-nothing niche shot it down like the pigeon his editors knew it would be.
