College Covers Up Controversial Painting

May 11, 2009

Officials at Shasta College places white poster board over a student's painting in an art exhibit, allowing those at the exhibit to lift up the board to view the painting, but hiding it from the view of those who don't take that step, The Redding Record Searchlight reported. The painting at the California college shows two young children, in the style of the Dick and Jane books, greeting a man in a bathrobe, which is open, exposing him in an aroused state. The student who painted the work, "See It Go," said that it was a response to sexual abuse she suffered as a child.
