A painting by Christopher Savido, which depicts President Bush's image made up from small pictures of chimpanzees, has been removed from a Chelsea
Market art exhibition after complaints from the market's management. "I came to New York to express myself," said Savido, 23, of Pittsburgh. "I
would never have expected this censorship to happen to me."
NEW YORK — A portrait of President Bush (search), made up of small pictures of chimpanzees, was removed from an art exhibition in Chelsea Market
after the market's managers complained about it.
The painting by Christopher Savido appears to be the president from far away. But close up, and the tiny chimpanzee images can be seen clearly.

Perhaps this is a case of true Political
If you read the whole article, you'll see that it was more than just a "well, maybe this isn't in the best taste", it was more like the manager
going completely ballistic, closing down the entire event!
Anyway, it's always nice to have a little Light Relief mixed in with the doom & gloom...
(I tried & failed to find the actual image on-line anywhere...)
