Will AM Radio’s “The Quiet” go silent?

The Quiet by AM Radio, with Morris Vig participating

That’s what AmyFreeLunch is suggesting: 

AM Radio’s magnificent The Quiet – the artist’s most personal and, in my mind, important piece to date – is losing its home due to the impending price increase.  

If SL has anything resembling a cultural history (and I believe it does, and the need to preserve its history will become more and more important as we try and get this field to receive the credit and attention it deserves), then this piece is definitely right up there in the canon. Losing it would be devastating.

She’s so correct.

Amy then throws a question out to the masses – whether there might be a benefactor that could pick up the cost of hosting this build.  I don’t have enough to cover an entire sim – and I’m not sure one person would want to be the host of a project like this in perpetuity – but I have 1,920 square meters of leftover space before my tier goes up and would be pleased to donate that to a conservancy organized to preserve “The Quiet.”  

Anyone else want to step up?

[UPDATE: Apparently Princeton is dumping 4 artistic-themed sims.  It’s not entirely surprising, though.  I’ll refer you to the prior paragraph in this post: “…I’m not sure one person would want to be the host of a project like this in perpetuity…” – and this is why.  SL needs a core group of committed leaders on this issue, not the fickle generosity of a sugar daddy.]
