Wellesley College's president, H. Kim Bottomly, has announced that she will not remove a controversial statue from a campus art exhibit, The Boston Globe reported. The statue is a realistic portrayal of a man in his underwear, sleepwalking, and many students have said that they find it disturbing. In a message to the campus, Bottomly said that “we cannot destroy the artistic integrity of this exhibition by moving the sculpture, and also, we must do everything we can to support those students who find themselves deeply affected by it.”
