Carbon Sink art censorship discussion continues at WNYC

Prompted by WyoFile’s feature essay, “Behind the Carbon Curtain; Art and Freedom in Wyoming,” WNYC’s Studio 360 has published its own story about art, censorship and the influential roles of powerful entities. Check out the audio and written story, “Disputed Art Disappears from University Campus.” A lively discussion is taking place in the comments section, including a lengthy comment by Wyoming House Rep.
