Museum Accused of Exhibiting Pornography

Financial support could be withdrawn from Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art because of a picture of a nude pregnant woman.

Today in Jacksonville, Florida a local community is organizing a meeting to support photo artist Angela Strassheim. City Council president Clay Yarborough requested the removal of the photographer’s work from an exposition for its ‘pornographic’ content and to withdraw funding from the museum.

Last week Clay Yarborough, who was indignant about one of the photos of the exhibition called “Project Atrium,” demanded that the Jacksonville mayor to withdraw a $230,000 grant from the Museum of Contemporary Art says BJP.

The photo “Janine Eight Months Pregnant” features a nude pregnant woman lying on a couch. Yarborough claims the image pornographic and could be seen by children.

“I see an intimate moment of a nude, very pregnant woman basking in the last bit of afternoon sunlight as she waits for the birth of her child,” Strassheim said. “I am proud of the museum for standing by their beliefs in the freedom of expression, and [for standing] by me,” she added.
