The march began in the middle of Museum Mile and snaked uptown along Fifth Avenue to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, a Manhattan-based Smithsonian institution.
Protesters yelled everything from “Put it back!” and “It’s Christmas, what’s wrong with you?” to the more satirical “Free the ants!”
The stink, resulting in the removal in late November by Smithsonian Secretary G. Wayne Glough, was manufactured by right-wing media outlets and caused by pressure from right-wing US congressman.
Not content merely to aid and abet Art+'s rabble-rousing,
Hyperallergenic has announced the following event:
We at aksarbent are happy to promote this
We’re classy, so in response to the GOP’s attack on David Wojnarowicz’s “A Fire In My Belly” video, we want to celebrate freedom of expression in the face of the right-wing American political establishment that gets whipped up into an irrational frenzy any time LGBT people are treated as equals. To celebrate our freedoms and the beauty of America, we are announcing our first-ever (and perhaps only) “International Draw Jesus Day” event.
Hyperallergic readers and fans with artistic abilities can submit their very own drawing of Jesus for publication on this blogazine on December 26th, which is known in Canada and the United Kingdom as Boxing Day.
Bring it artists, we will show whatever you send us and NSFW is perfectly fine. Forget the people who want to censor our lives and art and long live freedom of expression!
Email all your submissions to DrawJesusDay@hyperallergic.com and trust me, we can take it.
