The tragedy of the Barnes continues

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Stephan Salisbury:  "Art poised for eager crowds."

In March 2009, "membership totaled 390; today, there are about 15,000 members."  In Merion, annual attendance "never came close to 100,000"; "Barnes officials now expect a shade more than 200,000 visitors in 2012." In 2013, they expect that "admissions should be roughly 350,000."

Isn't it awful?
