Sleepwalker In Underwear Sculpture Controversy.

Underwear wearing sleepwalker sculpture

Sleepwalker sculpture selfie.Finally, some art for of regular folk. It’s called the “Sleepwalker” and it was installed as part of the New Gravity Exhibit at Wellesley College. What do the students think? They don’t think it’s awesome.

From a petition to remove the “Sleepwalker” on Change.org:

“Within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, the highly lifelike sculpture by Tony Matelli, entitled “Sleepwalker,” has become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for some members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought provoking to some, the “Sleepwalker” has already become a source of undue stress for a number of Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work on campus.”

I could see how this sculpture could be a distraction but does it rise to the level of ‘crucifix in pee’ offensive art? Probably not but it’s not my campus. [Arbroath and Boston]
