New Yorkers who want to protest the censorship of David Wojnarowicz‘s video at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. get their chance on December 19. Organizers at Art+ have called a march, gathering at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and concluding at the Cooper-Hewitt on 91st Street (like the National Portrait Gallery, the C-H is a Smithsonian Institution). Below is information about the protest taken from the group’s site, www.artpositive.org:
Sunday December 19, 1:00 PM
GATHER on the Metropolitan Museum steps
Fifth Ave. & 82nd Street
Then MARCH to the Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian FIFTH Ave. & 91st Street
Wear your free expression best and be part of the message.
