Protesters Knock, Schnabel Not Home

Remember the protesters who planned to gather Tuesday morning outside Julian Schnabel's studio on West 11th Street? As it turns out, 30 of them showed up?but one important participant didn't:

Schnabel, a key figure in the revival of American painting in the 1980s and a director of films like "When Night Falls," may not have been home. He didn't respond when reporters rang his doorbells. Nor did he answer a call made later to his studio.
Julian, baby, losing your edge? It's called confrontation! Throw something!
