A painting of President Obama in a crucifixion pose — complete with a crown of thorns on his head — has gone on display at Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery in Boston. It’s just a metaphor (duh!), said artist Michael D’Antuono. He blamed conservative media for “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior,” reports Fox News.
A campus museum can raise a community college’s profile and attract donors. Actor Vincent Price, known for his roles in horror films such as “The Fly,” donated 2,000 works of art to what’s now known as the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College.
