Visual assault at Crissy Field

A letter to the editor in this morning's SF Chronicle:

Sculptures at Crissy Field ("DiSuvero sculptures work on a grand scale," May 23).

The emperor's new clothes? How is it that SFMOMA Director Neal Benezra can foist this litter on San Francisco? The pleasant, wide-open space of Crissy Field is marred by this visual assault.

Apparently these sculptures speak to art reviewer Kenneth Baker but in some arcane language known only to himself. As to seeing them for what they are, I see that they are not unlike the barriers the German army placed on the beaches of Normandy to prevent the Allies from landing in France.

I know now how am I going to see that giant metal man made structure?
