Barron Says Goodbye to a White Male

Councilman Charles Barron just pointed out to me that a painting that used to hang on the wall of the Committee Room in the City Hall is no longer there.

Barron has long been pushing to have fewer portraits of “white men” in City Hall—the removed item was one such painting—and he told me hoped that in the wake of Obama’s election, there would be room to hang images depicting a more diverse cast of historical figures than before.
