Art disappears into commerce like a fading ghost at MMoCA during Maxwell Feet Daze

Art Fades Into Commerce at MMoCA During Maxwell Feet Daze
The 1980 Deborah Butterfield wire and steel sculpture Dapple Gray at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) becomes even more dappled and gray during the annual Maxwell Street Days shopfest on State Street. Its unfortunate position in the corner of the glass lobby becomes even more so. Reflections make it seemingly transparent and it seems to fade into the crowd of bargain hunters like an equine ghost haunting the festivities.
