MN: Artist Makes Art Out of Intolerence

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Art from IntolerenceLocal artist Lucinda Naylor is turning a negative into a positive. Many were enraged recently when Minnesota Catholic bishops sent out 400,000 DVDs expressing anti-gay marriage sentiments and urging church-going Minnesotans to vote accordingly.

Rather than organizing a traditional protest, Naylor decided to turn the DVDs into a powerful piece of pro-tolerance art.

The Wave is a sculpture constructed out of nearly 2,000 of the DVDs. Many of the discs were collected through a Facebook page inviting those who received the mailer to contribute. The piece stands at about 6 feet tall.

Minnesota Artist Wants to Turn Anti Gay Catholic DVD’s Into Art

Friday, September 24th, 2010

With over a million anti-gay marriage DVDs hitting the mailboxes of Minnesota Catholics in the weeks leading up to Election Day, there’s been no shortage of ideas for what to do with them. OutFront Minnesota says that recipients should mark them “return to the sender” and drop them back in the mail to the Catholic diocese which sent them, while others have suggested leaving them in the collection plate at Sunday services.

But Minneapolis artist Lucinda Naylor is encouraging Minnesotans to send her the DVD so that she can create an art project to counter the discriminatory message carried by the DVDs with one of “creativity and hope.”

“I’m an artist who has been doing a lot of work for Catholic churches over the past 15 years, so coming up with an artistic way to deal with the DVDs was my immediate first response,” said Naylor of the 14-minute created by the national Knights of Columbus and distributed by Catholic bishops in Minnesota. “I feel that the archbishop is particularly bent in regard to this issue of same-sex marriage.”
