Dear Sag Harbor Zoning Board member:


The Village of Sag Harbor is a unique American treasure.  Its splendid historic district of uniquely original structures is a great historic heritage.  But, as we all know, history continues.  The presence of the arts are meaningful everywhere, few places more than in Sag Harbor which is situated in a region that attracted artists and writers for several centuries, into the present. 


Larry River's Legs sited so perfectly on Henry Street, against the broad facade of 161 Madison Street, is a local treasure.  Not only is it a significant work of art, it is the art of a significant artist of international repute whose works are in major museums worldwide.  Just to note a few of the major museums whose collection includes works by Larry Rivers: Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; MOMA, NY; National Gallery of Art, Washington DC;  Hirshhorn Museum of Art, Washington DC; San Francisco Museum of Art CA; National Gallery of Art, Ontario Canada; National Gallery of Art, Canberra, Australia; Tate Modern, London UK; over 100 museums worldwide.


I request as per the notice posted by the Zoning Board this past week at the corner of Madison and Henry Streets, Sag Harbor, that a variance be granted or a special exemption of the zoning regulations be made to allow this work to remain in its present position, at your coming meeting scheduled for Feb 21, 2012 at 6:30pm, at the Zoning Board's office in the Sag Harbor Building Department, 55 Main St., 2d Floor, Sag Harbor NY
