"This Just In" piece on a symposium at the University of Southern Maine (USM) di
"This Just In" piece on a symposium at the University of Southern Maine (USM) discussing USM's decision to prematurely close a controversial art show in September. The censored show, "Can't Jail the Spirit: Art by Political Prisoner Tom Manning and Others," was taken down seven days into a planned seven-week run. Richard Pattenaude, USM president, said the university will take extra pains to appear neutral when promoting art exhibits. For its part, the university is planning a yearlong "colloquium on academic freedom" for 2007. With comments by Daniel Chard of the Portland Victory Gardens Project; Bruce Clary, a professor of public policy at USM's Muskie School; and Carolyn Eyler, USM gallery director.
