Chocolate Christ Art Exhibit Cancelled in New York
Who didn’t see this coming?: “Chocolate Christ art exhibit cancelled in New York.” Catholic America had its way with the Lab Gallery in midtown Manhattan on Friday when it got Cosimo Cavallaro’s awesomely-named “My Sweet Lord” exhibit featuring an anatomically-correct, 200 pound, 6-foot-tall milk chocolate rendering of the Big Guy cancelled days before its scheduled Monday evening opening. Set to run throughout Holy Week with the final day of the exhibit culminating on Easter Sunday, the show drew death threats and outcry from Catholic Americans and Cardinal Edward Egan about the nature of El Supremo’s depiction, sans-loincloth. Never mind the “Staff of God,” what they should have been pissed off about was JC’s George Carlin-style douchebag ponytail.
Maybe a chocolate Santa on the cross would be better.
…from the comments gave me a great idea for an easter installation…but i’m afraid i have no time this year…
