Over the weekend, a new exhibit at East Hampton's Firestone Gallery was met with a less-than-enthusiastic reaction by many who saw it. At issue is the artist's?Andrew Schoultz?use of the American Flag in a way that many consider is disrespectful to Old Glory and everything it stands for.
Well, the gallery/artist has issued a statement, responding to the criticisms:
