Before the wall of 8 by 10s, the collection of portraits
had proliferated so much that space to hang them was
running out.  There had also been an alarming decline in the
artistic quality of the more recent examples, some of which
looked as though they had been found in a thrift shop.  The
collection needs a curator.

"Plus, they have all those portraits of many of the great
singers of the past
hanging all over the place."

I hope you mean the ones that USED TO hang all over the
place.  (Downstairs
really)  The cheap publicity photo display was a cute idea,
but one season
was enough.  It's time to take them down and put the
paintings back up.
