An artist created a sculpture of Adam, based on Michelangelo’s work at the Sistine Chapel. The work was displayed at the Foundry Art Centre, a venue that’s also available for weddings and other events. The artist became upset when he discovered that the facility was covering up the genitalia of the statue at the request of one bridal party. He removed his statue, claiming that his work was being censored.
I explained to him that this wasn’t censorship, it was business. Of course, he also got a lot more publicity for his work this way than if he had left his work there with a drape around the waist.
