Updates, updates...

Sorry for the lack of updates lately -- I've had some family things to take care of, but I've also been very busy working my way through the DC bureaucracy to obtain permits for the Wojnarowicz Gallery of Censored Art.

I don't want to say too much about it quite yet since I'm still dealing with the city, but we still remain determined to shine a light on the Smithsonian's shameful capitulation to lies and ignorance, and we believe this gallery of censored art on the NPG's doorstep is the best way to do it.

More News

Bill Donohue and his Catholic League believe they've already won this battle. In this Washington Post article from today, Donohue is depicted as kicking back with a beer -- literally -- while we scurry around in his wake. Let's not let this be the final word written about this.

In more encouraging news, artist AA Bronson wants his work withdrawn from the Hide/Seek exhibit. Apparently he doesn't want to be seen as supporting a cultural institution that censors. Hopefully more artists will follow suit.

Stay Tuned

I'm hoping to have some news about the temporary Wojnarowicz gallery soon. Please keep checking back for news about next steps and how you can help!
