The protest over the National Portrait Gallery’s censorship of the controversial piece “A Fire In My Belly” by David Wojnarowicz, was attended by over 200 people, reports the New York Post .

Protesters chanted “Hey, hey, ho, ho, censorship has got to go,” as they walked from 81st Street and the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Smithsonian affiliate, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, at 91st Street.

Bill Dobbs, one of the protest’s organizers, told the Post that “This street demonstration in New York reflects rising anger in the heart of the art community. Almost every professional art organization has condemned the censorship.”
