A letter in the Star-Tribune declares and initiative to evict the locked-out orchestra’s chairman from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Here’s the nub of it:
On July 18, Minneapolis Institute of Arts members will vote on a slate of 10 nominees for vacant three-year positions on the board. One of the nominees is Richard Davis, the CEO of U.S. Bancorp and a major architect of the current disastrous Minnesota Orchestra lockout.
Unfortunately, MIA members must vote on the entire slate rather than for or against individual nominees. We therefore urge all MIA members concerned about the future of the arts in the Twin Cities to contact the MIA and request that Mr. Davis withdraw his name from the ballot.
