Sun-Times Gets it Wrong Too

March 11, 2009

Looks like Reuters is not alone in its editing woes.

Dave Newbart of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Art Institute of Chicago is raising its rates to $18 and introduces the topic like this, referring to the museum’s current exhibition “Becoming Edvard Munch”:

Like Edvard Munch’s famous painting on display at the Art Institute of Chicago right now, the museum’s proposed admission fees might make you want to scream.

The only problem is that Munch’s painting The Scream is in fact not on display.  The famous image is represented by a woodblock print, but the painting itself remains in Europe.

It’s interesting also to note that the comment section on Newbart’s article has disappeared, when I was in the process of registering to post on it.   Did Daley put his foot down on all those bashing our venerable Chicago institution?
