So reports this morning's New York Times
, which takes a tour of the Dallas Cowboys' new home
with Gene Jones and finds the walls adorned with works by the Whitney-feted Lawrence Weiner
, Franz Ackermann (who's collected at the Museum of Modern Art
), conceptualists Mel Bochner
and Daniel Buren
, Matthew Ritchie
and Olafur Eliasson
, who's responsible for The New York City Waterfalls
. All the pieces are site-specific and were selected by the brightest minds in local art collecting: Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth'
s chief curator Michael Auping, Dallas Museum of Art
's Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art Charles Wylie and collector Howard Rachofsky
, among others. Says Gene, "This is a fabulous cutting-edge building, and we thought it needed art." As opposed to, oh, a neon Miller Lite sign.
