Artist’s anti-Bush stunt provokes violent reaction
Sunday Herald, UK - 23 hours ago
THE BRITISH artist Mark McGowan has been forced to curtail his latest stunt after it inspired a violent reaction in New York.
In Times Square, three burly men with handlebar moustaches were less sympathetic, calling McGowan a "goddamn liberal" and threatening to kick him "in the jaw" adding, "you'd have terrorists up your ass if it wasn't for George Bush." Shortly afterwards, he decided to head back to the art fair, to remain there for the duration.
