College Display Of Obama-Jesus Painting Stirs Backlash And More

 City Never Sleeps By Joyce Li

Controversial College Painting: A painting of Obama depicted as Jesus was recently removed from a New York City art gallery and is now displayed at Bunker Hill Community College. The painting has sparked public outrage and even support for the artist. According to Karen Norton, a spokeswoman from Bunker Hill, the shows are meant to be provoking. “The exhibit was intended to coincide with the presidential election, and it represents different points of view pertaining to politics and our political leaders,” says Norton. However, the artist, D’Antuono has not received all positive feedback from his work. “I was threatened for eternal damnation. One lady said, I hope you get arthritis in both your hands and can never paint again,” says D’Antuono. To read more on this story, click here.
