The University of Maine at Farmington is apparently teaching a rather impoverished view of art.
A student there did an “art project” that consisted of laying American flags on the floor.
Did the University nix the project because it required no creative vision and confused political protest with art?
Of course not. Not only did the project go on, but it was protected by guards.
In a video of the project, the University’s provost tells an American veteran that he didn’t fight for a piece of cloth.
But if it’s only a piece of cloth, what’s the point of the desecration?
Meanwhile, as such abstractions are lost on the students at the University of Maine, as well as those who are supposed to educate them, others of college age fight to protect their freedom of expression.
