    Not only is the exhibit in poor taste, but it is associated with Fox news, and has a short life span. And this kills it:


    ... The artist is a white woman from New Orleans.

    She says it represents white privilege in America and how it negatively affects the black community.

    The exhibit runs through August 10th ...

    Chiraq has its own unique set of problems; the White woman could have better used her time to help this action:

    Interesting from a social/political standpoint. Artists have a unique perspective of the world that they need to express. Judging from pure art it doesn't really do anyting for me.

    Art replica of slain black teen stirs US race debate



    ... Brown's mother gave tacit approval to the project by traveling hundreds of miles from her home in Ferguson, Missouri for the opening at Gallery Guichard on Friday.

    The mannequin of her son was covered up before she arrived.
