New idea for museum

The Fayetteville blogger Iconoclast suggests today that the Northwest Arkansas Museum Foundation, launched by the late banker and community visionary John Lewis, should look no further than the U of A campus to build, since former Chancellor John White did away with the museum there.

"UA Chancellor-designate David Gearhart now has an opportunity to correct John White's colossal blunder and submit a proposal to host the new museum at the University, reclaiming that public educational institution's intellectual contribution to " 'the conservation, continuation and communication to society of the world's natural and cultural heritage, present and future, tangible and intangible.' "

The closing of the  U of A Museum to save money was, like closing the UA Press, not a proud chapter in the state's educational book. (The decision on the press was reversed.) The Northwest Arkansas Museum Foundation hopes to open its facility by 2012.
