Art and Free Speech

I found this great article on artist and the freedom to express oneself.

This is soooo true! I’m having a group show, and the theme of the show is censored art work. Our art has been censored because of content.The nude,which is a venerable tradition in art, is under attack.
The nude has been declared not “family friendly”, yet we have murder, robbery and rape galore on prime time TV. This is a very skewed set of priorities, in my opinion.
Enjoy the article, and think on this qoute:
“If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.” — John F. Kennedy
