Artists continue to battle for the expression of free speech

ST AUGUSTINE, Fla. - eTradeWire -- Art Censorship by a government is nothing new. The recent uproar over the National Archives censorship of 2017 Women's March photo is a familiar page from history. Images were distorted which were considered politically incorrect.

The painting, L' Art Degenere d'phare (Lighthouse Degenerate Art) honors the contemporary artists who works were banned by the Nazis of World War II and displayed in the Degenerate Art Exhibit. The works of art were formerly exhibited in German Museums.

The painting, L' Art Degenere d'phare of the Crooked River Lighthouse, is part of the juried "Cutting Edge" exhibit at the St. Augustine Art Association. It is on display through February 2.
