It looks like the MAC's board of trustees' decision to replace some of its executive board has done little to quell those still a little hot about the museum's decision to fire it's executive director, Forrest Rodgers.
Tonight at the Bing Crosby Theater, a group is holding a "Rally to Save the MAC." The event, which is not sanctioned by the MAC, kicks off at 7 pm and is an open community meeting to discuss what organizers see as a mishandling of Rodgers' firing, which looks like it could end up being handled in the courts.
"Show them we stand for a new MAC. New leadership from top to bottom and we will not be silenced, we will not lose our direction, our purpose or our passion. The MAC does not belong to the few, it belongs to us all and we have spoken," the group wrote on the event Facebook page.
Again, this kerfuffle looks like it's far from over.
