A short article that puts some numbers to the fiasco of the Miami-Dade public art program: 13 pieces worth $12.6 million not recorded in inventory, 24% of the collection in need of maintenance or repair, one $400,000 piece destroyed because of a disagreement with the artist, $24,000 in storage fees for pieces not on public desplay, 87 items (total value $94,780) missing, 46 other pieces damaged or deteriorated. Shameful shit. Total collection: 630 pieces of art valued at $28.2 million. (via MAeX)
