Screw you guys. I’m goin’ home.

Remember the gallery owner who was threatening to close his gallery and leave town because of the Bronze Fonz statue? Well he’s going through with it.

He did have a cool art gallery (though, by some accounts, a struggling one) and I will miss seeing some of the artists he brought to town, but sheesh. Get over yourself, Mike. It’s just a little statue. The world is big enough for both of you to exist. (But I guess maybe your world isn’t, eh?)

I’m torn between being sad that Hotcakes is closing and being seriously peeved that this guy is choosing to blow off Milwaukee because it’s funding a $75,000 pop culture icon statue. Having worked in an arts funding organization, I know how heated these things can get — which arts group deserves which small slice of the pie — but this is ridiculous. He’s completely ignoring that Milwaukee spent millions to built a world-class art museum. It put Milwaukee on the map in the art world. Leaving over this seems like a “forest for the trees” idea to me. Sad and annoying at the same time. I’m sure the Germans have a word for that.


They do. I’m not entirely certain of the spelling, but I believe it’s “scheiskopf”.
