Exhibition Interference Shows That Public Institutions Still Struggle with First Amendment

It would trouble most to know that our public institutions are having trouble maintaining one of our most basic of freedoms we have as american. That is the right to free speech and the first amendment which allows individuals to express themselves without censors or having to be politically correct.

Key Takeaways:

  • The confusion in both cases reminds us to remember what the First Amendment is for: it is not to shield the public from expression, it is to promote it.
  • Artist Timothy Desmond created a painting in 2015 called The Attack, in which a regiment of Confederate soldiers is depicted advancing from the right side of the frame into battle.
  • Desmond submitted The Attack for display at the Big Fresno Fair in California, as he had other works in recent years.
