Vanity Fair's profile of Wallis Annenberg reveals that the philanthropist doesn't think much of that smoke-belching Jeff Koons train planned for LACMA, even though she personally paid for the $2 million exploratory grant on the project. Part of her quote: “I personally think Los Angeles deserves a much finer icon than a train hanging from a crane." But she has nothing but praise for LACMA director Michael Govan, whom she calls a visionary. According to Vanity Fair, Govan sees the $25 million train as "Los Angeles’s Eiffel Tower." [Vanity Fair]
