Skip to comments.The Artist's Response to the Shoot Sarah Photo
Posted on 10/23/2008 11:18:36 AM PDT by Pagan Power
I just got off the phone with the person that represents Dawn Robyn Petrlik, the artist who depicted a scene where onlookers could take up a rifle and aim it at Sarah Palin. She read to me a statement from the artist which I have attempted to summarize. I have requested that the artist send me a full statement which I have promised to publish in full.
I also spoke to the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition who completely defended the artist and was a bit snippy with me. I used a calm and casual tone with the woman I spoke to and she was rather rude. She told me that they do not receive federal funding but instead receive taxpayer money from New York City. Perhaps someone should call Hillary.
Please visit my blog Pagan Power for the details.
I will keep you updated if I receive any further details.
Go tape some cross hair stencils on their front door ... that should cause some involuntary liquid expulsion among the rats.
Oh, they’ll just use the excuse of ‘art knows know boundaries’ when something disgusting and distaseful is created. Gah!
if i drew a picture of obama with cross hairs on his head and put it on the net i wonder how long before the secret service showed up at my door? how can we possibly win a race when obama is in a corvette and we’re left running in cement?
You left off the quote marks around “artist”.
Can someone photoshop Obama’s picture over Palin’s and publish it? Then when the ‘rats complain we can say the original idea was theirs.
call the secret service.
From the article:
Visitors can don a fake-fur vest and hold a cardboard rifle to pose with the vice-presidential candidate and her daughter.
Go pimp your deceptive blog somewhere else.
There are people who are surrounded by bigots
and know it is wrong, but are afraid to be vocal against it.
These people are going to pull the lever for Obama
and they are not being polled.
Now that’s a great idea!
The left seems to find humour in promoting assasinations of Republican office holders.
I wonder if cross hairs were painted on Robin, would she see the humour in that?
Okay ... fair enough. But now that it’s being used in a bad way, it needs to be taken down.
Now let’s see if another “artist” will put up a display with Obama and Ayers with bombs and a flag under their feet. Or perhaps with Odinga killing Christians. Yeah ... that’d be as equally accepted, wouldn’t it?
That is not art; it’s incitement.
That it was created by an ostensible artist is incidental.
Excellent suggestion. I’m sure the Secret Service could have a constructive conversation with the “artist”.
Don’t they know that Sarah can return fire?
I get the message. Shooting a person who hunts isn't really shooting a person. Dehumanization of your political foes makes it easier to kill them. If that wasn't the intended message, a cute furry aminal would have been the one holding the rifle.
Anyone got a picture of the “artist”?
