Museum goers cannot get into the Musee d'Orsay to see the exhibit on the oldest profession in the world. Not because people there are opposed to the subject matter or find it offensive as there might be a strike in America with our outwardly prudish morals (though there certainly are plenty of people looking at porn online and in magazines and movies, not to mention keeping prostitutes in business still...how can that be if we are so moral?...but I digress...)no, the art isn't being opposed...its the hours that the workers have to work that is in opposition and which has caused the museum not to be open due to strikers.
I hate it when everyday labor difficulties interfere with artwork exhibitions.
"Splendor and Misery: Images of Prostitution 1850-1910," includes historical artifacts, police records, paintings and photos, was to open September 22.
Let the poor guys have a break for goodness sake.
Let them have free passes to see the artwork too.
