    This video, which documents a controversy over plans to alter the original architectural design of the Whitney Museum of American Art, examines some of the problems raised by the decision, including Modernist and Post-Modernist styles, architecture as art, the responsibility of art museums to the public, and the role of the architect.

    "In depicting the museum's response to the community's reaction to the divergent architectural styles, this provocative production also portrays the struggle of an artist to reconcile his creative endeavor with the public's expectations." — Booklist (American Library Association)

    "A good film for discussions on architecture. Recommended." — Library Journal

    *** "Very nicely made…extremely well done." — American Film and Video Association Evaluations
