The Spitting Image
New York Art Shuttered After Bush Monkey Portrait
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A portrait of President Bush using monkeys to form his image led to the closure of a New York art exhibition over the weekend and anguished protests on Monday over freedom of expression.Check it out here. Bloggy (a pretty good art blog) has something on it too. You can buy a copy here. NYT has it here. And here's the picture itself:
