Teen’s nude loses art award to hypocrisy

[From Art lovers raise money for teen who lost Student Gallery title | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com ] Three separate judges were brought in to choose a winner before the Pilot would finally accept one that was not nude in any way…. “We honestly don’t believe those two pieces are appropriate to be held up as the winners of a high school art show, because they do depict the nude,” Pam Smith-Rodden, director of marketing for The Pilot, said at the time…. Reid’s work is very discreet, There are almost no images of it but to me the pose is interesting and there is certainly nothing objectionable showing (no more than hipster pants reveal on a daily basis anyway) It is ridiculous that the competition was changed based on the entrants and laughable that judges were hired only to have their decisions overthrown.
