Oh, brother. Artist Scott LoBaido is “disgusted by the constant bashing of Catholicism” by a “publicly funded institute,” so he decided to haul his painting of a naked Brooklyn Museum director Arnold Lehman and a toilet to said institution and filmed it! No word on his thoughts about the constant bashing of LGBT people by Catholicism.
This week’s prescription is full of exciting show openings that will have you running around like a feverish art fanatic. We should mention that is a potential side effect.
OMG guys, the artistes have arrived in Brooklyn. China Chow announces the challenge. They artists have to do street art! In Williamsburg! So hood. It’s a team challenge, too. Apparently art is the new Quidditch.
The police raid on unsuspecting Occupy Wall Street protesters at Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning was a disturbing sight. Cops in riot gear smashed tents, arrested groggy protesters from the park, confiscated possessions and books from the People’s library (although we have confirmed that the materials are safe) and even brought in bulldozers to rid Zuccotti of the movement’s micro-city. Although protesters have returned to re-occupy their space, they will no longer be allowed to bring tents or sleeping bags into the park according to a New York Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday. With the symbolic and physical base of the movement under threat, everyone is asking what is next for Occupy Wall Street.
