Personally, I think art with nudity and especially sexual content to it have a limited number of places that really work. Galleries and Collections of
course.... Cat houses... Rather tacky bars.. that sort of thing. Galleries covers the high end stuff, but the rest? Well, the library just isn't the
venue in my opinion.
That's the place above all others that needs to be open and welcoming to EVERYONE as much as it's possible to be.
Limiting books? Absolutely not...and someone has to put the effort into looking for and finding sexual content books in libraries. Art on the wall
that can't be avoided? Well, that's hardly the way to be universally welcoming, eh? I mean who wants their kids seeing that and regardless of
context?? (and saying a library patron or family just has to avoid a whole room of a public library to avoid being offended isn't reasonable
The library really isn't the spot for pushing the envelope in racy and provocative art outside of special showings in the bigger ones, IMO.
