The Meaning Of Art Censorship

An act made by goverment officals, school systems, and other rule makers to not allow certain pieces of art or tattoos to be exsposed in certain working inviorments and classrooms.

Art or Obscenity

Art has been around since the days of the cavemen. Romans where the first to have nuded art, then came the French just a few hundred years behind the Romans, but there is a censorship debate with school systems and goverment officals of it being consitered pornography. People who make their living making art and tattoos dissagree with nuded art being concitered pornography. The famous Andy Warhol painted his own form of nude pop art using nuded men.
