WASHINGTON -- Scrambling to regroup after the ouster of its director and the shelving of a costly new addition, the Corcoran Gallery of Art announced last week that it was undergoing a makeover -- starting with a crisp new logo. At a news conference, board trustees introduced a prototype for a spanking-white lowercase "c" against a breezy sea-blue background, meant, they said, to convey the museum's identity as "cool," "classic" and "contemporary." Quoting the logo's designers, Liz Bradley, a museum spokeswoman, said, "We wanted the new Corcoran identity to wash over visitors and entice their senses."

David C. Levy, president and director of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington for 14 years, has resigned over a decision by trustees to suspend plans for a $170 million addition designed by Frank Gehry. "We just couldn't see eye to eye on the future," Levy said yesterday in a telephone interview. He announced his resignation Monday after the board, claiming a shortage of money, decided to shelve the new Gehry wing. "The board felt the Gehry building was a distraction; I felt the opposite," Levy said of the proposed addition, to which the District of Columbia had pledged $40 million.

The proposed partnership announced earlier this month between the University of Maryland College Park and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington is one of the more unusual ideas floated in recent years, not least because it would involve Maryland's flagship university investing in a privately owned institution located outside the state. Yet from what is known of the plan so far the potential benefits for both UM and the Corcoran could far outweigh the risks involved in such an arrangement, and for that reason it's worth exploring further.

He was 74. "In the eyes of Des Corcoran, one sees the soul of a great teacher — twinkle, tears, unflinching, caring. It's there in those eyes that tell his students of his understanding and his compassion and his faith," said William C. Mules, McDonogh's former headmaster.

When the Metro train pulled into the Silver Spring station late Monday afternoon, Michael Corcoran made a split-second decision that might have saved his life. Rather than hoof to the end car, which would conveniently deposit him beside an escalator at his destination, Union Station, he stepped into the third car and took a seat. Corcoran, 39, just felt happy to be escaping his job as a federal contractor before 5 p.m. for a change. Even with the punishing two-hour-plus commute to Jarrettsville, he figured he'd get home early enough to play with his four kids, maybe even mow the grass.
