  • I think the artist got exactly what s/he was looking for ~ and deserved it.

    For those of you who are so concerned about violence, maybe you should consider the heartless attack on the feelings of others and think about the fact that all that was attacked was an inanimate object, not a living being.

    Perhaps you should consider that living beings have feelings. Putting out crap like that and calling it art is no different than the bully who calls other kids names, or what "Rev." Phelps and co. do every time they go chant at a funeral or harass gays. If you can stand up for the kids that are picked on, or the soldiers' families/gay families, but not those to whom their religion is important than you are a bigot ... at best.

    Mean is mean, and sick/twisted is sick/twisted ~ regardless of who/what the target is.

  • Well, it was controversial "art" to begin with. There was controversy before the woman destroyed it. And now her doing so is controversial because some agree with her, and some don't.

  • Lol sounds like she needs a hobby, perhaps one not involving crowbars. People get a little too worked up and offended, I will never understand it. It's just art. You don't like it? Don't look at it.

  • I find it amazing that someone would even do something like that. If you look at the artwork it is an amazing work of art. But all art work is controversial...There is always someone who disapproves.

  • I think she was exercising her "freedom of expression". The artist claims this for the vulgar content of what is being billed as art and she is claiming it as an expression of how the art made her feel. I think this is a ridiculous story. Saying you can portray anything and call it art is ridiculous. I do thing the better way to show the distain for the work would have been for no one to go see it.

  • I think she was exercising her "freedom of expression"

    Then she needs to make her own lithograph. What she did is called vandalism, not expression. She's no better than gangs that tag the side of a building or bored kids who run around busting storefront windows. She's a criminal with anger management issues.
