The light reflecting off this condo tower into the Nasher Museum’s is burning up the plants in the sculpture garden. It’s blinding the visitors. It’s throwing its ugly glare and unwelcome sun patterns on the work through the perforated ceiling. It’s a malice and it’s getting worse. It’s threatening the art works.

The museum has placed some light blocking panels on the roof and could just “cover” the sculpture garden, but that would defeat the architectural design. Or, the condo could be outfitted with an anti-glare solar shading system, but that would cost a lot of money. So it’s a cultural conflict, really. (Image: John McKee)
