Sculpture controversy! Art in America, free speech, the right to express oneself. All were brought into question when The Door was placed on a berm in front of the firehouse, across the street from a public elementary school and a church. Children asked .."where did it come from? Where does it lead to?" There were many answers and for some the door was possibly a way into hell. On Halloween a sign was stuck to the door saying "No exit." A meeting was called and the City Council and the mayor presided. The Door remained for one year, but now it is to be moved. The piece will be moved in October to another central location in downtown Sebastopol. To top of page. | Jam History and Artists | Metro Active article on "The Door" |
