David-Apollo's maker would not approve, and, after seeing their furnishings, it's inconceivable the Kaufmans (a must-see, in the West Building) would hang around digs like this, but they are still there, waiting, I suppose, like the rest of us for this canker to heal.
It is so out-of-character for you, National Gallery of Art, contrasted with the beauty and glamour of your distinguished buildings and their contents! This fence does not flow here. It would flow at a junkyard in West Virginia (please excuse me, West Virginians, but you know what I mean). I don't think zoning laws permit junkyards within the confines of the District of Columbia.
Since you are getting a face-lift at the East Building, can the doctors come down and uplift the old fence right outa there?
I am surprised the National Park Service has not complained. Are trailer parks allowed in D.C.? Ones that stand for years? Did you know the trailer and fence show up as out-buildings on Google maps?
What about planting some trees or big bushes as a privacy hedge? Your landscaping team does a magnificent job, but the fence, I imagine, is out of their hands.
Your beauty is impinged by this eyesore. It's like the Mona Lisa with a band-aid across the corner of her chin. It's time for the masters to come in and do their thing. Surgeon: Please heal this scar!
With deepest affection,
