This is from the New York Public Library’s current exhibit of contemporary prints which includes a series titled “Line Up”  by artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese.  From the Times… “Each black-and-white digital print is a mug shot-style diptych in which a member of the Bush administration appears in profile and face forward, holding a police identification sign and the date on which he or she made a statement of questionable veracity relating to Iraq.”  The controversy lies in the fact that this is a display in a public library, supposedly a politically neutral institution.  Thanks to Woeful for the heads up!
