Brown Bag Protest

Tom Wolfe’s preservationist friends are taking their “Save 2 Columbus Circle” campaign to the street this Thursday. A lunchtime demonstration is planned to take place outside the Center for Architecture, at 536 LaGuardia Place. The Center for Architecture/AIA New York Chapter will be gathering for a private reception in support of the new Museum of Arts and Design. The protest begins at 11:45, and those who attend get fed. So, even if you have no qualms with changes to the building’s modernist facade, the brown bag lunch should be more than enough reason to drop by. And maybe the man in the white suit will make an appearance.
