Update on Erotic Show in St. Pete

by

It looks like the new Erotic Art Show in St. Petersburg, FL, is not causing a big flap. What a cool contrast: The Salvador Dali Museum and the Erotic Art Show existing peacefully in the same city. Doesn’t that show that the denizens of St. Pete are up to the challenges of living in a diverse society?

“White Series #1” by Norm Darwish 

Christine Silva of the St. Petersburg Times includes this quote in her story:

“There are people who are museum professionals who don’t always get that there is some sort of criteria for what makes something art or what makes good art,” said Kathy White, deputy director of the Dali Museum. “It isn’t all just a matter of taste or opinion.”

City Council Chairman John Bryan said he had no problem with the idea of an erotic art gallery, so long as the works were not displayed publicly. But he said it is unlikely the city will advertise the gallery on its Web site anytime soon.”
