Letter: Art museum is shameless

The vulgar mediocrity of everything associated with the new Aspen Art Museum almost defies comprehension. The thing looks like a birdcage and sticks out like a sore thumb. And the idea of having tortoises with iPads on their backs wandering around among the guests at the opening is simply beyond understanding. Who would come up with such a stupid idea? In the words spoken at the Army-McCarthy hearings long ago, “Have you no shame? At long last have you no shame?”
