Cover: "Frank Herrara's photograph shows Robert Mapplethorpe's ´Self-Portrait with Cigarette,' 1980 as projected by laser artist Rockne Krebs on the facade of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., on June 30, 1989, as part of a demonstration protesting the museum's cancellation of the Mapplethorpe retrospective that had been scheduled to open there that evening. The Demonstration - against the Corcoran's action specifically, and against censorship in the arts in general - was organized by William Wooby, of the Collector Gallery and Restaurant in Washington, and by Krebs, founder of the coalition of Washington Artists." --Editor's description of cover.
