    A Queens museum said Friday it is shuttering its controversial anti-President Trump exhibit dreamed up by actor Shia LaBeouf, conceding that the installation has become a “flashpoint for violence,” The Post has learned. A webcam mounted on a wall outside Astoria’s Museum of the Moving Image — titled “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” — began filming on Inauguration Day, and was to be in place 24/7, for the duration of Trump’s presidency.

    An art group in Copenhagen decided to hold an exhibit dedicated to history’s martyrs. But alongside the likes of Joan of Arc and Socrates visitors will also find the Paris and Brussels attackers, something that got the group reported to the police. Ida Grarup Nielsen, who leads the artist collective The Other Eye of The Tiger, sees the theme of martyrs as encompassing persons on any side of history who were willing to die for their cause. The installation to take place May 26 – March 10 at Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District will be fashioned into a museum in the vein...

Shilla-period artifacts such as pottery and daggers show Persian influences in the form of artistic techniques...

    Egyptian mummy exhibit is son of Ramesses II By Lucy Cockcroft Last Updated: 2:48am GMT 15/03/2008 An Egyptian mummy kept on display in a provincial museum for nearly 80 years has been identified as a son of the powerful pharaoh Ramesses II.

    DALLAS — Artwork depicting the Virgin Mary as a stripper stirred trouble while on display at a small Catholic university before the piece was apparently stolen. The print was part of an exhibit last month at the University of Dallas that featured the work of students at Murray State University in Kentucky. Joanna Gianulis, a senior art major at Murray State, said she was trying to raise questions about perceptions of saints and sinners and didn't intend to be sacrilegious. "How do we know that an exotic dancer is sinful?" she said. "What if she has the best intentions and...

    ( British actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is best known for his role as the famously-bespectacled magical prodigy "Harry Potter," will donate the first pair of glasses he wore as a child to a Liverpool exhibition remembering those who died in the Holocaust. The glasses will be linked with others to form the shape of a railway track, reminiscent of those upon which Jews were transported to concentration camps throughout Europe. The 18 year-old actor, whose mother is Jewish, sent the oval, gray metal-framed glasses he wore as a 6 year-old to be part of the memorial. Former British Prime Minister...

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - The Canadian War Museum has bowed to pressure from veterans and agreed to change a controversial exhibit critical of Allied bombing of German cities in World War Two. The decision had some historians crying foul that a public outcry could force a change but others said the exhibit had given an inaccurate impression of the bombing campaign, which killed 600,000 Germans. The exhibit refers to how the value and morality of the bombing campaign remains bitterly contested. The museum in Ottawa is still deciding how to revise it, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday. "Although Bomber Command and...

    WASHINGTON - The Smithsonian Institution toned down an exhibit on climate change in the Arctic for fear of angering Congress and the Bush administration, says a former administrator at the museum. Among other things, the script, or official text, of last year's exhibit was rewritten to minimize and inject more uncertainty into the relationship between global warming and humans, said Robert Sullivan, who was associate director in charge of exhibitions at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Also, officials omitted scientists' interpretation of some research and let visitors draw their own conclusions from the data, he said. In addition,...

    The skeleton of the fossilised, 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor known as Lucy, will go on display in the US, Ethiopian officials say. After four years of negotiations with the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Texas, Ethiopia agreed to lend the bones for scientific study until 2013. It is hoped Lucy's 11-leg tour will boost tourism and increase Ethiopia's profile as the "home of all humanity". She will leave her country of origin - and the origin of mankind - in June. As well as Lucy, the travelling exhibition will also include about 190 other Ethiopian artefacts including humankind's earliest...

    PARIS - Do artists have to be miserable to produce great art? A new exhibition in France suggests that a little inner darkness helps. "Melancholy — Genius and Insanity in the Western World," which has visitors lining up around the block at Paris' Grand Palais, is anything but depressing. "Long Live Melancholy!" one highbrow French magazine raved in its review. The dazzlingly extensive look at art from antiquity to the 21st century shows how troubled thoughts have inspired great painters, sculptors, philosophers and writers. "Melancholy is not only negative," curator Gerard Regnier said in an interview. "On the contrary, it...

    "Dan Hicks, the local Christian architect who the proposed the biblical creation exhibit, has condemned the oversight board's change of heart as a violation of Tulsa taxpayers constitutional liberties. He maintains there must be something very special about the Genesis account of creation for the Park and Recreation board to insist on suppressing it, especially when the zoo already features religious symbols in other displays, including a statue of an elephant-like, Hindu deity."
