A that has gone on to win two National awards and now is sort of a loved landmark a she noted. A when we initially booked the exhibit wed done so knowing that some of Mapplethorpe a work is sexually explicit but we in no Way anticipated the vehemence of the response a she said. That response has divided the pubic. A a we re saddened by the fact that this has polarized the Community a Banister said. A i think this kind of thing is. Tremendously draining. But a great majority feel this is an area that needs to be addressed. A we see ourselves As a forum for new ideas and a Way to think about contemporary issues. There was certainly no calculated attempt on our part to develop controversy a she added. A i think that Art is always a personal kind of decision and should Challenge the viewer emotionally and for Patricia Weiner who owns a. Gallery in. Montgomery the crucial question raised by the controversy is of censorship. A i oppose any form of censor clergy report negative reaction to photos by fran Siva staff reporter Cincinnati a local clergy leaders asked about the Robert Mapplethorpe photography exhibit say the Only comments they have heard from parishioners so far have been negative Douglas Mullins senior minister of Hyde Park Community United methodist Church said that some Church members have indicated that the pictures at the Center of the controversy do not appear to be Art and should not be shown. A my personal feeling is that the pictures in question Are not Art Are in bad taste and considering the Basic stance this Community has taken with respect to pornography the pictures do not belong in Cincinnati a Mullins said. Father William Drain pastor of st. Mary a Church in Hyde Park said Only that he would stand by the statement issued by archbishop Daniel e. Pilarczyk. In it Pilarczyk indicated he would not see the exhibit. A if the exhibit offers an inappropriate portrayal of sexual activity it would seem to be something persons of religious and moral sensitivity would not patronize a his statement read. Ronald Hanson pastor of the Blue Ash Baptist Church said he also believes the pictures in question should not be shown and that Church members he a heard from agree. A Many of them Are making Calls to share their opinion a 1� explained. A if what has been discussed in the paper is being shown our City does not allow that a he said. John Speakes interim episcopal minister for Indian Mil Church said he Hasni to heard from his congregation. A i have not seen any of the pictures a he said a adding that from descriptions he a heard a i think my sensitivities Codd be offended. On the other. Hand i done to have to go. I can stay ship a she said. A when you Start to prohibit or censor some things it could Lead to something else. It frightens me. A a it a not that i approve of Mapplethorpe Sart but that i disapprove of censorship a she said. For Mary ran who has a gallery on Erie Avenue in Hyde Park the solution of separating the pictures at the Center of the controversy is a Good one. A a in a very Happy they re putting the controversial ones in a room by themselves a she said. A you can choose whether to walk into that room. I believe in artistic Freedom but personally i done to like anything that degrades human beings. A when very conservative folks Are exposed to Art by very Liberal folks who done to have the same Type of family Structure its shocking. A my personal feeling is that you want to have Art. That children and people of All Ages can look at. On the other hand there a the first amendment and Freedom of expression.
