This national survey collected data on Americans' attitudes
concerning freedom of expression issues arising from the exhibit of a controversial art show at the Brooklyn Museum in the fall of 1999.
Controversy about the show, titled "Sensation," centered on a painting of the Virgin Mary by British artist Chris Ofili
that incorporated elephant dung and cut outs of pornographic images into its
design. The survey included questions about awareness of the controversy,
attitudes toward the public display of potentially offensive art, attitudes toward
government censorship of art, and attitudes toward public funding of museums that
display controversial art.
