Inspirational Body Art by Lucy and Bart

Controversial Dildo Jesus Art Show 

Say whaaaaat?

"The pieces in question feature images of Jesus with large dildos fixed to their collaged surfaces, extending visibly outwards. In one offending work, Jesus's face is covered with a wooden ashtray topped by a semi-erect penis encircled by a dangling cross bracelet. In another, a large cross sculpture is adorned with a bright red dildo."

"A Foot in Both Worlds": Sculptor Matthew Ronay on Art, Shamanism, and the Duties of the Transcendental Artist.

 "Matthew Ronay's surreal sculptures exist at the boundaries of compression. His early work, bright and bold, cartoonish and lurid, suggested heady explanations and surreptitious cultural commentary. Several years ago, however, Ronay rejected this work, erasing any whiff of easy explanation or modern cynicism from his art, and arrived at a intuitive, mythological vision of sculpture. His newest exhibition, a vast "forest" installation of symbolic forms, will show at Andrea Rosen Gallery in June. "


MLK Memorial Unveiled 

"It was 27 years ago when the idea of a memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was first proposed to be built on the National Mall, reports CBS News Correspondent Chip Reid.
