Take Back the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center—Now!
Take Back the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center—Now! And good riddance to the Met Museum’s Koch Plaza, too.
These places belong to the people, not to the extremist right-wing plutocrat, Koch. Our civic cultural institutions made a bargain with the devil in taking his money for the display of his name. We find this disgusting. We should leave flyers to this effect whenever we visit.
We should express our opinion vigorously to any functionary of either institution. And we should all put a statement to this effect on all our websites.
So for renaming, how about: “The New York Theater.” And for the plaza, how about:
“The Fountains of New York.” But whatever names, not the notorious money man’s.
