Art Display At College In New York Features Works By Terrorist Detainees At Gitmo

The higher education system in America needs a complete overhaul. The left wing on college campuses is out of control and they keep finding new ways to insult America.

John Jay College in New York is even displaying art work by terror detainees.

The Washington Times reports:

John Jay College art exhibit features works by Guantanamo detainees

An exhibit at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City featuring various artworks by current and former Guantanamo Bay detainees has reportedly forced the Department of Defense to review its policies.

The art on display at “Ode to the Sea: Art from Guantanamo Bay” in John Jay College’s President’s Gallery features more than 30 paintings and sculptures by Guantanamo prisoners — four of which are still detained, a local Fox affiliate reported. The exhibit opened Oct. 2 and runs through Jan. 26.

The art, which reportedly can’t show violent images, was obtained through the detainees’ lawyers, the New York Post reported. The exhibit website includes an e-mail address for people interested in buying works from the artists who have already been “cleared by military tribunals and released.”

“They created this art under strict regulations,” the exhibit’s co-curator, John Jay art crime professor Erin Thompson, told the Post. “They cannot produce violent images or anything that might contain a hidden message. Every blank sheet of paper … had to be inspected and cleared for use.”

What kind of school thinks this is a good idea?
