Ellsworth Kelly/Whitney Museum of American Art

Last week, Herbert Muschamp, an art critic for The New York Times, received a very special gift: a collage from abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly depicting a possible monument for Ground Zero in Manhattan. The collage is constructed using the front page of The New York Times's Arts & Leisure section. Muschamp joins the show to talk about the gift, which he later returned and was subsequently donated anonymously to the Whitney Museum of American Art.
