From The Sun Chronicle:
A publicly funded poster exhibit extolling press freedom has been removed from the Boyden Public Library following complaints over what some regarded as “graphic” and “inappropriate” content.
Stephen Lewis, a collector and former union official, had produced the display, which consisted of more than 20 posters protesting threats to freedom or describing dangers faced by news-gatherers around the world in reporting on terrorism, war and corruption.
[Kevin] Penders [chairman of the board of library trustees denied censorship was an issue, but did say library trustees and personnel received complaints from multiple sources about the suitability of the content.
Penders said he could not comment in detail on how artistic displays at the library are vetted, but said approving artwork is generally not a matter for trustees. He said that process will be reviewed in the future.
