A vile display at the Red Brick arts center

Dear Editor:

We just spent again a very delightful time in Aspen. However, I was totally taken aback by a painting (?) in the current exhibition at the Red Brick Center for the Arts, depicting our current president with a sizable penis sticking out and some political statements on the bottom of the painting.

What did the trustees think of when they approved this piece to be hung (pun intended)? The entrance to the building has a warning about “sensitive adult content.” Hooray for political correctness gone astray. I consider the painting simply obscene.

It is a discredit to the office of the president and an insult to the president and the general public and Aspen’s otherwise attractive and active art scene.
