This Bodies exhibit coming to Winnipeg for a little while is supposed to draw 200 000 visitors between September and January? Holy crap that's what, four months? And they draw 200 000?
And the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is only supposed to hit up 250 000 a YEAR? INCLUDING web hits?
The lesson here, is that Bodies is a world-class travelling roadshow. A human rights museum, touted as being world class and in league with the Guggenhiem, is not. Not by a longshot. Bodies will create buzz, drive excitement and people to downtown for four months. The Museum will not.
Looks like the CMHR got showed up a bit. By the MTS Centre. At least we wont see Mark Chipman or anybody proclaim 311 Portage as a world class tourist destination.
