Strengths of Lewis Museum show far outweigh conflict-of-interest issues

I was stricken by your recent review of the current show at the Lewis Museum ("'Ashe to Amen' exhibit at Reginald Lewis museum raises questions," June 29).

Your focus seemed ill-advised and neglected the strengths of the show that curator Leslie King-Hammond has assembled. I saw the exhibition with a group of very intelligent, art savvy women who were enchanted by it.

Let's be reminded that the show originated in New York at the American Bible Museum, where I first saw it. Some of your criticism of conflict of interest would not apply to this venue.

Of particular dismay was your gathering of opinions about the "conflict" piece versus the opinions of the exhibit itself. Too bad you did not see it similarly and instead tainted it for our community.
