Brooklyn College decides sex wrong for New York public

Crain's reports that Brooklyn College has opted to move their school MFA exhibit rather than fight the City's shutdown.

"In keeping with the public nature of the space, as well as its position as an honored war memorial, Brooklyn College has respectfully decided to move the entire student exhibit to our campus," said [president and Brooklyn College Provost Roberta] Matthews in a statement.
Lesson: Art is best kept locked up unless it's really old or pretty much dead otherwise. Or: Don't scare the horses' asses in a tinhorn town.

This statement was made by Provost Roberta Matthews before consulting with the students! We have not agreed to remove our work from the Brooklyn War Memorial. Please join us on the stairs of the War Memorial on Cadman Plaza on Saturday May 6 at Noon to protest censorship of art!
