In "Sensation," Arnold Lehman recalls the costs of artistic freedom
During his tenure there, in 1999, he presented a very controversial exhibition which attracted the ire of Rudolph Giuliani, who was then the mayor of New York City and who was contemplating a run against First Lady Hilary Clinton for the US Senate. The argument about public funding of art, and even the very nature of what art is, was the talk of the art world, and for about 6 months, the world at large.
Arnold Lehman has written a book about the controversy, called Sensation: The Madonna, the Mayor, the Media, and the First Amendment.
Tom Hall will join him for that Writers LIVE! event, and Arnold Lehman joins us today, on our digital line, from Baltimore.
