6.2.14

Last week we posted about how Atlanta looked like a scene from The Walking Dead. Now this weird artwork arises at Wellesley College, Massachusetts. The sculpture entitled Sleepwalker, depicts a half-naked, sleep-walking man in nothing but underwear.

So far, more than 300 students have signed a petition demanding its removal from the Wellesley College. While the president says the piece of art is part of the intellectual process.

The sculpture which is part of an upcoming exhibition, is by artist Tony Matelli and designed to trigger “unexpected new ideas”, the college president said.

Weird/strange/artistic…or damn-right ugly? Do let us know your opinions either way.
