  • Censorship of art

    Instead of making two seperate topics I decided to put these stories together since they're similar.

    Some museum-goers upset by exhibit's nude photos of Marilyn Monroe
    In my opinion, if they give you some kind of warning and you still go in, you have no right to complain.

    Nude video piece proved 'too risque' for PPG Place
    Don't really know what to say about this one.

    So to sum it up, people need to learn to chill out and find serious, important things to complain about. The list that I could come up with would be too long to post here. But, you can rest assure that nudity in art would not be on it.

      Mount Clemens has gallery move nude statue indoors

      Controversial public art -- just nude or crude?

      These two stories go along with the original topic so I'm putting them here.

        I like approach to free publicity. I bet the gallery gets a spike in foot traffic without spending a nickel on ad space. Someone over there has a sharp marketing mind and a good feel for human nature. Good for them..

            It's crazy. Nothing went too far or was done in a matter that would put it in the face of kids. People just need to accept not everyone thinks like they do.

              Meanwhile, the children can watch all the sexual innuendo, sexual situations, bloody violence, simulated murder, endless viagra and erectile disfunction commercials, and a weekly recap of sexual predators on the TV in the living room.

              Our society has become a cesspool..

                “We don’t like to censor,” Brighton Art Guild President Pamela Day said.

                If you don't like to censor, why do it? Just stand up to the idiocy and allow the unbelievably tame statues to be put up. They will see more provocative images at the beach. You are not protecting the children. They have no need to be protected from these statues.

                      Temecula criticized for removing nude portrait from gallery

                      A step in the right direction perhaps?

                        I think that when we start censoring any type of artistry we leave a very real sign of we don't want to know. I believe that not knowing is worse than seeing and disagreeing but it should always be up to the individual of what is good or bad.

                            Paintings deemed too risque, removed from town hall

                            Is there nothing more important going on in the world?

                              So, they get one complaint about one nude painting and decide to remove all nude paintings, including some that had been up for decades with no complaints. How small-minded.
