Art Quote Monday- Facebook,nudity and Censorship

“As an institution of higher learning with a long tradition of upholding the art world’s ‘traditional values and skills’, we find it difficult to allow Facebook to be the final arbiter—and online curator—of the artwork we share with the world.”

New York Academy of Art- after facebook removed profile drawings from their account. See article "Too rude to show?"

Great words! I don't do Facebook. Anything that controls or censors is taking us back in time, not forward. This generates so many thoughts & ideas about social media's use in the art world. Super topic, Shayla! Happy Week... hope all goes well with the move. :o) ((HUGS))
