Artinfo quotes sources
as saying Alice Walton was the buyer of an Isamu Noguchi table sold at auction this week for $4.5 million.

The table, made in 1939 for A. Conger Goodyear and most recently owned by Ronald Lauder, was auctioned Tuesday at Phillips in New York. The article doesn't say if the table is destined for the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, which Walton, an heir to Walmart billions, founded. The museum has a Noguchi item in its collection, a lit wall piece called Lunar Landscape.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
