Don't be fooled: Pernicious threats to freedom of expression are alive and well in America, warns Jock Reynolds, a key player in the federal arts funding uproar of a few years back. And, he noted, the threats aren't all coming from the religious right. He pointed out that art always has had "the power to disturb and provoke," and the debate over artistic censorship "is an age-old controversy not likely to diminish any time soon."

Last summer, a battle erupted in Washington when the director of the National Museum of American Art sought to remove an early work by a prominent artist from a newly opening traveling exhibition. The 1964 work by Sol Lewitt, which incorporates photographs of a female nude, was claimed to be sexist and degrading to women. The matter was resolved when the National Museum backed down and opened the show with the Lewitt intact.

Since January, the 104th Congress has introduced a grand total of 148 amendments to the U.S. Constitution--a document apparently so flawed in conception and in dire need of fixing that it's a miracle we've managed to survive as a nation these last two centuries. Among the high-profile amendments is a proposal, recently passed by the House, that would ban physical desecration of the American flag.

It's a rare thing in the Southland to see a survey of native abstract art that is as hip, scholarly, comprehensive and concise as the one just opened at the Newport Harbor Art Museum. Rather stuffily titled "American Abstraction From the Addison Gallery of American Art," it still manages to function as a brilliantly clear short lecture on the essence of the form delivered by the world's best teachers, the works themselves.
