Maplethorpe Exhibit

I forgot to mention that SOV2 will be hosting a Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit featuring some of his most controversial images. I know many, yes, including even a few SOV2 parishioners, have complained about Mapplethorpe's art. However, as we have come to understand at Universities, trying to hide from controversial topics is merely anti-progressive. The images, some of which do seem a bit "cutting edge," are designed to stimulate dialogue among our diverse communities.

The opening of the Mapplethorpe exhibit in the Faith Tower will also begin on March 20th.

I am thrilled that these stunning views of God's handiwork will be displayed here for us all to enjoy.

Remember, if God didn't want gay S&M in this world, She wouldn't have designed us to enjoy it so damn much.

Will this be before or after the performance of the V-Monologues, complete with interpretive dance?
