Summary A news article written by Gary Warth, entitled, “San Diego Congressman Removes Student Painting from Capitol Hill Wall After Complaints it was Offensive,” offers us a depiction into the state of our country and how art has the power to be offensive. (Warth) The art work was on display in one of the connecting hallways in Washington, D.C. that was used as an entrance by many members of law enforcement before it was removed by Congressman Hunter. The painting, done for an art contest by a high school student, depicted police as “boars” or a pig and the criminals as wolves or panthers.
