"Crown" at Art Museum Generates Discussion

"Crown" exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

While the Cincinnati Art Museum is closed, a sniper fires 19 rounds into a bronze cube. Video and still cameras record the bullets as they make their way from the sniper’s rifle in the museum’s front lobby, travel past more traditional works of art, and pierce the metal cube, mounted in the Great Hall. “Crown,” the work of conceptual artist Todd Pavlisko, now on display at the museum, has generated discussion and some controversy.  Matt Distel, Art Museum adjunct curator of contemporary art, joins us to discuss “Crown” and its place in the world of art.
