Another salvo has been fired in the erupting war for control of the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Los Angeles. Today, artist Ed Ruscha resigned from the board of MOCA, becoming the latest and the final of four artists who've stepped down, all angry and frustrated with the way the museum's being run. That after the forced resignation three weeks ago of MOCA's long-time and well-regarded curator. Is this just a local power struggle or a battle over the future of art? Who does a museum serve -- its elite board, its budget, or the public? Guest host Lisa Napoli explores the clash of tradition and the economic reality of art in these troubled times. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, guest host Sara Terry looks at the "dark money" in political campaigns.
