It might be the biggest controversy in rich-people Washington in years: Wayne Reynolds thinks he has a plan to save the Corcoran, but gallery folks aren’t interested. So now he’s waging a brash public relations campaign to get himself a seat on its board — specifically, as chairman, reports our colleague David Montgomery. Corcoran officials are outraged, calling it a “reckless” move; another museum chief likens it to a hostile corporate takeover. But as Reynolds prepares to spent $10,000 on a party to get the word out, at least some members of the Corcoran community are intrigued. (See also Montgomery’s 2002 story about how Reynolds and his wife Catherine first made a splash in Washington with their million-dollar gifts.)
