Baltimore Museum of Art director Arnold Lehman said yesterday the museum is "increasingly committed" to building a wing for 20th century art at its Art Museum Drive site, but has not completely given up the idea of a downtown branch at the Power Plant instead.
His comments came in the wake of an announcement earlier this week by David Gillece, acting head of Center City-Inner Harbor Development Inc., that he will not select a developer at this time from the proposals submitted in the fall, of which the museum's was one.
"We can't have both [the Art Museum Drive wing and the Power Plant branch]," said Mr. Lehman. "It's one or the other. We've always given greater weight to our commitment to Art Museum Drive . . . There's a point at which we can no longer consider an alternative, and we're fast approaching that point."
