Hiya Guys and Dolls,
A very realistic looking sculpture of a man in his underwear was placed outside on a road at a women s Wellesly College in Massachusetts has caused quite a stir. So much so that there is a petition with over 300 signatures to have it removed.
The sculpture created by artist Tony Matelli is titled "Sleepwalker" depicts a man in a deep sleep only in his underwear. It is part of an exhibit from the Davis Museum on campus.
According to students it is a “source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault”.
Kim Bottomly president of the college said in a joint statement with museum Director Lisa Fischman said it will most likely not be removed adding :
“The very best works of art have the power to stimulate deeply personal emotions and to provoke unexpected new ideas, and this sculpture is no exception,” the statement said. The sculpture “has started an impassioned conversation about art, gender, sexuality and individual experience, both on campus and on social media.”
Do you think this should be removed?
