I'll accept your concession of defeat though you could work on it.

In the summer of 1989, Mapplethorpe's traveling solo exhibit brought national attention to the issues of public funding for the arts, as well as questions of censorship and the obscene. The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., had agreed to be one of the host museums for the tour. Mapplethorpe decided to show his latest series that he explored shortly before his death. Titled Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Moment, the show included photographs from his X Portfolio, which featured images of urophagia, BDSM and a self-portrait with a bullwhip inserted in his anus.[16] The show was curated by Janet Kardon of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA).[17][18] The ICA was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support Mapplethorpe's exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Challenging piece! 



Trump was a yuge fan of Mapplethorpe's urophilia work ...

Later Trump even commissioned his own works from Russian 'artists' ..  wink, wink, nudge, nudge ..

A sign of the end of civilization.

President Trump is proposing the elimination of the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities in his federal budget plan to be released early Thursday, the chairwoman of the arts endowment told her staff on Wednesday.




any “advanced civilization” must fully value the arts, the humanities and cultural activity.


Who cares? My photos are art also. But I don’t need any government money to show or sell them.
