Wellesley Sleepwalker not going anywhere anytime soon

20140204-084035.jpgA very deliberate Wellesley College President Kim Bottomly today joined the weeks-old discussion about the controversial Tony Matelli “Sleepwalker” sculpture on campus. She wrote a blog post (“I have welcomed the depth of the dialogue and am grateful for the many voices and perspectives that have productively contributed to conversations about art, freedom, censorship, and feminism, to name a few.”), had a letter published in the Wall Street Journal that responded to a student-bashing op-ed in that publication and sent a message to the internal Wellesley College community.

In that letter to the college, Bottomly said that the sculpture of the zombie-like man in his tighty-whiteys will remain on campus through the spring stay of the Matelli exhibit.
