The controversial Piss Christ artwork Sen. Alfonse DAmato once branded as a deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity, is coming to New York, and security is being heavily ramped- up at the gallery that will show the piece. Andres Serranos work a photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artists urine first ignited controversy in 1989 when DAmato complained to the US Senate that it was an outrage, an indignity and a piece of trash that had been funded by taxpayers. Serrano had won a $15,000 prize for his work, backed in part by the National Endowment for the Arts But the piece which will be on display as part of a retrospective of the New York artists work at Edward Tyler Nahem gallery beginning Thursday is still causing controversy over two decades later.

I believe Madame Hillary stood up for a similar sickening display a few years back, did she not?
sure..Obama already has a muslim flag of USA fading into bloody stripes.
I say we should be as peaceful as the muslims are especially to the pantywaist who created this ‘’POS”. Maybe he’ll volunteer to sleep in a cage full of cow manure and then put it on display on the upper West Side
The timing of this is perfect to show the staggering hypocrisy of the left on “respecting another’s religion”.
Complete with pictures of police guarding the exhibit against extremist attacks, etc.
Cannot have a “Piss Muhammad” no way, no how.
The reason why libs will always defend Islam is simple, the left hates America just as much as the Muslims do so they find a connection with them..meanwhile you can trash Christianity and Judaism and every other religion and nothing happens, but when you say something about that pedophile Muhammad what happens, riots happen
>>Cannot have a Piss Muhammad no way, no how.<<
Too bad, then nobody will get to view my latest art, “Feces Mohammed”
I was really proud of that piece...
So, will Obama have the artist arrested at mid-night, with photos of him with a white towel around his head?
“Too bad, then nobody will get to view my latest art, Feces Mohammed
How the heck am I supposed to tell the difference?
I suppose there will be labels and markings?
This could get totally confusing!
Before folks get hysterical, let us remember that the whole thing that made this ugly work a subject of public comment was the fact that it got government money (OUR money) for its promotion.
Otherwise it would have been just one of the many pieces of mindless, “progressive” trash shown in any old gallery.
So if this is not sponsored by government money (OUR money), we need to ignore it.
This is being presented to bait Christians and make them look as bad as Muslims.
Don’t fall for the bait. Keep the focus on the government money aspect.
They need to get ahead of the story out of Bellflower, CA:
St. George Coptic Church now has armed protection for all services, but apparently the media doesn’t think it newsworthy.
I’m preparing my masterwork, it’s called “piss koran”. I wonder how many galleries will want to display it.
All great art is misunderstood.
