Don’t Mess With My Toot Toot!

A woman armed with a crowbar entered the Loveland Museum/Gallery on Wednesday afternoon and destroyed a controversial exhibit, The Misadventures of Romantic Cannibals, by California-based artist Enrique Chagoya. The week-long controversy stems from some artwork which viewers said shows Jesus Christ engaged in a sex act (ok, oral sex being performed on him). “It’s sad and upsetting,” Chagoya said Wednesday night by phone from California. “I’ve never had this kind of violent reaction to my art. Violence doesn’t resolve anything.”

Via The Denver Post. The LA Times has a video interview with Chagoya here.
