March on New York’s Cooper-Hewitt to Protest Smithsonian Censorship

Pin It

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.

Art+ is a New York City-based art action group – fighting censorship and
homophobia
