    Further proof of declining literacy. They look like idiots doing this in a library. The local mall would have been more appropriate and more interesting. But malls don’t write grants, do they?

    Perhaps Cedar Lake chose this space because of its unique architecture (the glass ceilings and floors, sleek elevators, balconies, etc), which undoubtedly offered the dancers a stimulating playground for movement. Inspiration for movement can come from anywhere and anything, but I’d like to think that books and knowledge are stronger catalysts than handbags and perfume.

  3. Sure, but what about the poor schlubs who went to the library because they thought it would be a quiet place to research, write or finish problem sets free from distraction? And yeah, that library does look like a Simon Properties mall, ie The Westchester in White Plains or Waterside Shops in Naples, FL. I did notice that.

    BTW, I don’t think they look like idiots. I think they look like “jerks” by a stronger word. I appreciate you toned down my profanity, but the meaning is very different.

    True, the installation might have disrupted the quiet atmosphere. But how often can visitors to a public library get a free performance where art, architecture, and movement collide? For the library “regulars”, I’m sure it was a refreshing change of scenery.
