Loveland museum grabs national attention for destruction of Christ lithograph by Montana woman
Normally, if an art museum in Loveland, Colo. (or anywhere in flyover country) were the subject of a lengthy New York Times article, people would be thrilled.
Maybe not so much this time. As we all know by now, the Loveland Museum Gallery was the scene of an attack last week when a woman from Montana drove to Loveland, walked into the museum with a crowbar and destroyed a lithograph that some think showed Jesus Christ engaged in a sex act.
The artist, Enrique Chagoya, says the artwork was not meant to be interpreted that way, saying he intended it as a protest against corruption in the Catholic church.
