Lecture: Offensive Art

The virgin Mary decorated with elephant dung. Crucifixes submerged in jars of urine. This Sunday, a lecture at the IMA will explore the power -- and cultural impact -- of such blasphemous art.

The lecturer is S. Brent Rodriguez Plate, author of Blasphemy: Art That Offends. The book includes images of the most notorious blasphemous art of our time -- probably not your best choice for a holiday stocking stuffer.

The lecture takes place at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The event is free, but registration is required.
