Political Art Refuted in Art City - Saugatuck, MI
« on: July 31, 2014, 05:49:00 PM »
Heading to civil court in the morning (8/1/2014) to dispute city ordinance 150.30 (More than 3 opinion signs).
This is Art, not an opinion  You can see picture of misfit sculpture here.

The City of Saugatuck is not happy with the imaging and canvas nor the integration into the artful landscaping.  Really !? 

A city that is based on art is now trying to decide what is and what is not art for display on ones private property.   First Ammendment violation.

Heading to civil court in the morning.    egaads.  These people don't have anything to do with their thumbs.
I can give them an idea what to do with them    (;D)b

Motownrider,

Well, everyone has an opinion.

In the movie The Hunger Games, there is a saying: "May the odds be forever in your favor."

Concerning the "artwork", IMO, the peace sign is the most appealing. 

Warmly,
Sass


It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens. ~~Baha'u'llah

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come
