A local TV station features a report about the new art exhibit in the University of California at Berkeley Botanical garden that uses some of the 24 million glass tubes left over from the now bankrupt Solynda factory.
According to the artist of the exhibit, the tubes are a “excellent vehicle for the conduction of light and sound and air and space.”
“I would prefer not to have political controversy surround the garden, because its basically a very P.C. place without controversy,” says Paul Licht, the director of the Botanical garden.
But Licht admits with a smile, “If they come here out of politics, and discover the garden, something good has come out of politics.”
