Warhol Foundation threatens to pull funds over NPG pulling Wojnarowicz work

Missed this from yesterday: The Warhol Foundation, which kicked in $100,000 for the National Portrait Gallery exhibition Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture, says it'll yank funding if the gallery's parent organization, the Smithsonian Institution, doesn't put David Wojnarowicz's video work Fire In My Belly back on display. NPG pulled the work after some Republicans in Congress and the rightwing Catholic League claimed it was "anti-Christian."
