Students Removing Art From Memorial Space
Monday, May 08, 2006
New York, NY —
Brooklyn College art students are removing their thesis projects from a city-owned memorial space near the Brooklyn Bridge this afternoon.
REPORTER: This comes after the Brooklyn Parks Commissioner decided Thursday that the art work was inappropriate and asked that it be removed. Mayor Bloomberg backed the decision.
BLOOMBERG: There has been an understanding ever since art was put here that the art would be appropriate for families and respectful and appropriate for a war memorial and this time it was not.
REPORTER: Some of the pieces included a sculpture of male genitalia and a sexually charged video. A Brooklyn college spokeswoman says the Parks Commissioner has never complained about student artwork before and adds that the college is proud to display the works on campus.
