Panel Discussion: September 30th, 7pm

Our First Amendment rights are no guarantee. In 2001, shortly after the September 11th attacks, polls indicated that 50% of the U.S. population agreed with the statement "The First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees." This dramatic climate change has a huge impact on art, how it is made, exhibited, and discussed. Now, when works by certain artists or of an indefinable political nature are exhibited, we can virtually guarantee the Secret Service will show up.
