Do NOT Censor Steve Olson’s artwork in the Betteravia Galleries

Recent news

Victory!!!

We just received news from Steve Olson in regards to the vote held today to determine the fate of Olson's art piece "Buy Sexual" and whether it could remain in the Love + Guts show in the Betteravia Galleries in Santa Maria, California in Santa Barbara County, after Bob Nelson, chief of staff to 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam removed the art from the show and put it in a broom closet, and a petition and formal request was made by the office of Peter Adam to remove the art from the exhibit permanently. "5-0 passed to remain in show.... Landslide. Hooray!" - Steve Olson Thanks to everyone that signed the Do NOT Censor Steve Olson’s artwork in the Betteravia Galleries petition. It's a true VICTORY for artists everywhere. At the time of this posting, the number of signatures on the NO CENSORSHIP petition was 318 supporters in comparison to the 225 signatures on the REPLACE art petition, so every signature made a huge difference. Please continue to share and sign this petition as the fight to maintain our right to the freedom of expression continues every day...
