RK has just heard the textile museum will be closing its doors and moving lock, stock and barrel to George Washington University's (GWU) new campus.
While the fine print and details of what is called a "historic association" between an "existing museum" and a university have not been announced this move can only signify the FAILURE of bruce baganz, chairman of the textile museum board, and the entire board of directors of the textile museum, to preserve, forget about enlarge, the museum George H. Myer's founded.
And although it is far better for baganz and the board to recognize their complete inability to follow through on any of the proposed announcements and press releases they have issued in the past 5 or 6 years, since having been in control of the textile museum, and now merge with George Washington University RK can only imagine what Mr. Myer's reaction would be.
Let's all remember bruce aka bigmouth baganz hired with great fanfare, then soon fired, dan aka do nothing walker after proclaiming walker would be the new broom need to sweep clean the textile museum's dusty condition. Then baganz harked and hyped a proposed textile museum move, that never happened and ended costing the museum a considerable loss of money, reputation and face, to a space on Washington DC's Mall.
As someone who has followed closely the decline and downward spiral the textile museum has flown for the past 4 decades RK believes it is not a physical move that is need to reverse this course but an entire change of leadership.
It's high time to get rid of big mouth baganz and his band of dumbell "rugdumb swells" who call themselves the textile museum's board of directors.
Instead of trying to "Save" the textile museum big mouth baganz and the idiots on the board should all resign and a new group of capable and innovative members and a leader should replace them.
There is absolutely no doubt baganz and his board of directors have steered the textile museum to the brink of disaster and, quite frankly, who could possibly believe their latest and greatest plan, the GWU merger, will do anything other than postone or at best prolong the situation?
