BYU’s sad attempt to avoid reality

sean-300x223Sometimes the most simple pieces of art end up being the most provocative. Take for instance this post from Box Turtle Bulletin, which tells the story of a student artist at Brigham Young University who constructed an installation that features photos of a gay student and another student who is straight but supportive. The pictures do not identify who is gay or straight. Not exactly the Virgin Mary covered in cow dung, right? Well think again. BYU put the kibosh on the installation. BYU also didn’t bother to tell the artist. All I can envision is a BYU administrator with his eyes tightly closed shut murmuring to himself, “I can’t see you, I can’t see you!”
