Art gallery closes after verbal and physical abuse of owner

Artdaily.com, The First Art Newspaper on the Net, has a story about a woman named Lori Haigh who was running an art gallery in San Francisco. Was, until she made the seemingly innocent decision to show some work depicting the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. The article shows a picture of her face after a stranger punched her in the eye; another spat in her face, and she has received numerous telephone and e-mail threats. She was finally forced to close the gallery indefinitely, part because of fears for the safety of her children. "This isn’t art-politics central here at all," Haigh said. "I’m not here to make a stand. I never set out to be a crusader or a political activist." Like so many good links, this came from Whole Wide World of Fat Buddha.
