This Sunday, Dec 19th, hundreds of artists, curators, queer and free speech activists, as well as other supporters of free speech gathered in front of Metropolitan Museum to take part in a rally demanding that the Smithsonian return the censored video by artist David Wojnarowicz, “A Fire In My Belly,” to the National Portrait Gallery’s Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in
American Portraiture. The group then marched up 5th avenue to the Cooper/Hewitt Museum. The event was organized by Art +, an ad hoc group with which NCAC has been working closely.
