What a way to disseminate!!

Spotted this on NPR. Apparently there is a yearly student painting competition, the winners of which get hung in the Capitol in DC for about a year until the next set of winners. One such, "Untitled#1" by David Pulphus went up last June, and apparently a group of Republicans have decided it was "offensive" and have been alternating taking it down with members of the Congressional Black Congress putting it back up. I can see what "offended" them, I also rather like the painting myself; nice use of symbolism. Follow the link for the story and a look at the painting. Great way to make sure everybody sees it, guys!
