The Mendel Art Gallery will be giving up its existing natural river park setting for a commanding view of all these great pieces of urban infrastructure. Also, the predominance of so much concrete at the gallery's proposed new location pales in comparison to the pastoral wood-chip trails that are easily accessed from the Mendel's current site.

River settings are not all created equal.
