Nude No-No? Take a look at this statue! Would you want this piece of art in the middle of your town? Haddonfield's new Mayor says he's ok with it. So it was dedicated this weekend as part of a downtown public art project. It's a work called Uno by Miguel Antonio Horn, a Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts graduate. LIKE if you agree with the Mayor that its ok to display.

[Riley Masterson] - Who cares this is stupid its even making news is this really what ppl care about now days
[Melanie Burr] - Maybe they keep the statute but just add a nice bikini top and bottom to it
That's what I would do
[Erica Tate] - Not only is it naked .. It looks scary
[Rada Dvorkin Miller] - Nothing wrong with it. Relax, it is a statue for Pete's sake.
[Susan Cronick] - It's art. Who cares.
[Tiffanie Genay Otoole] - So what!"but it is a little scary looking.. lol
[Farmer Peach] - its art for crying outloud....if you're so offended.....dont EVER leave your house. BIGGER things in our country to worry about, other than a pair of brass boobs!
[Elisa Taylor] - it's no different than a store mannequin
[Mary Lelina] - The shape of the breasts and genital are not that graphic. It looks nothing but art so it should be ok.
[Maryanne Fern Wisniewski] - looks like an abused women on display
[Sean Barton] - It looks like the birds like it
[Anthony Garland] - We are all nude under our clothes. But, the uptight make the most noise. Nudity = the devil, even if it is just a statute.
[Doug Callahan] - why is this an issue this is stupid its art
[Tom Ski Peculski] - I'm gonna go taste it's nipples!
[Shayna Sky Salvatore] - Art is art if this is how the artist felt when they made it don't change it. If you can't handle it don't look it at. This is why we need the arts to stay in schools. So people know what art is when they see it.
[Julie Mc Donald] - some creepy weirdo will have his way with it
[Alicia Wilson-Garcia] - Art is art. Naked is beauty. Leave it alone. It's not very graphic.
[Don Davies] - nothing wrong with it
[Olivier Desaintmartin] - He should worry about making a new road in days instead years!
[Dan Hayward] - "She's nubs" by NOFX
[Linda Fassano] - I'd rather look at this statue over the disgusting graffitti that's out there.
[Steve DiClemente] - The chopped off arms are more disturbing.
[Brad King] - They just don't like the handicapped, if it had all her limbs it would be different
[Donald Wheeler] - must be a Muslim model ???
[Brigid McGrath Stasen] - I'm not bothered by the nudity but the missing arms are a bit disturbing
[Jeri Gates] - There is nothing wrong with nudity. The human body is beautiful. Congrats to the mayor for displaying this work of art.
[Kathy Dwyer-Terry] - Kids see more on TV and the internet! It's ART people!!!
[Brian Saier] - I do t care and I'm not offended by it......BUT it is ugly and amateurish
[Jeff Spellman] - It's a statue who cares
[Virginia Cuevas] - The nudity isn't half as disturbing as the arms and legs :-/
[Shirley Dawson Looney] - It's ok as long as the face doesn't look like a real member of the community...haha.
[Millie Perez] - Where's the rest of it?
[Ashley Bettis] - Its freaking art. Omy this world is going down the toilet
[Brent Eyeinsee Jackson] - Why not i want nude statues on my lawn
[Rita Reitmeyer] - Absolutely. Very nicely done
[Angela Easter] - Oh, PLEAS!!! You can even see details & we have far more detailed art all over Philadelphia. I was expecting to see that her legs were split wide open or something. Its not exactly pretty but it is very tasteful!!!
[Lisa Effrig Lagreca] - Its disturbing, no arms or legs
[Jeff Walls] - Yeah I see the problem! They dont have that color in spandex this year.
[Allison Crane-Bidoli] - Wouldn't bother me
[Kevin Kilmartin] - people have to stop being such prudes
[Maryanne Fern Wisniewski] - Art is in the eye of the beholder, some do not see art, some do not see abuse. It's great to be American to see what you want to see. To me this is Art but looks like a women abused. Do not expect everyone to go along with what you see . Learn to accept opinions.
[Donald J Swanson] - looks to me that some people lead a sheltered life, paintings and statues of nude men and women can be found all over the world on display , since ancient romans, if this bothers them then DON'T LOOK !! I am getting really pissed off at people who hate or don't like something that is nature and beautiful in its very own way ,, the means of a few can cont out way the means of the many, leave my art alone, and really FOX you can't find anything better to post.
[Roz Tucker-Gambino] - The arms are disgusting. Where is the rest of it.
[Janet Fries] - It looks like a mutilated corpse from 'Criminal Minds'...I love art, but that's just hideous...
[Misty Dustin Henry-Trent] - If this was in Greece , noone would be complaining because it is a work of art n many fine artist did many statues centuries / decades ago that we're of nude goddesses n greek gods , so seriously people stop trying to find something to complain abt , be happy . So many complain But yet they don't see the bigger picture it's a work of art , a talent that someone has , a gift that he Or she was given .
[Kathleen Corbett Kimmerley] - Its disturbing, it looks like she was butchered
[Larry West] - We all most be vigilant against the biggest scourge to America: Nude breasts with no nipples.
[Tara Broadway] - ITs not that bad. Leave it alone
[Heather Funk-Hadraba] - I live across the street from. No biggie. Its not offensive or graphic
[Sandy O Brien] - We are way too uptight about nudity in our country. I am an artist and every single body is a work of art- we jut need to accept things more openly. Most of the folks who don't accept nudity are those who are not confident enough to reveal themselves! There is no "protecting" our children.... If nudity wasn't so taboo then our kids wouldn't rebel and experiment so much- they woul understand it more!

[Misty Dustin Henry-Trent] - Farmer Peach , I agree with you .
[Candace Wells] - I think its time for everyone to take there clothes off and stop being sooooo up tight get a grip.... You come in thos world naked hour leaving this world naked... GROW UP
[Sue Kenderdine Kraemer] - The artist probably dropped it and had to pass the lack of limbs off as the intended finished product. Lol, kidding. But I agree, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
[Maryanne Fern Wisniewski] - How much did this cost the Taxpayers? Was it donated? does anyone know?
[Carey Nickey] - Are you serious?! It's a piece of art! Lets be big girls and boys, okay??!!
[Phil Wydro] - Ridiculous that this is news and that people are offended. Relax people it's ART!
[Mark Anthony Rushon] - fox 29 turning into tmz
[Kelly Matteson-Lotz] - people need to lighten up
[Erica Perazza Powell] - If the mayor of haddonfield had allowed the statue of David or Venus De Milo to be put on display in the center of town which are more graphic than this would people be upset. This statue is in no way offensive. It is art and it should be appreciated as such.
[Candy Lamb Harrington] - O my God Its art
[Cheryl Mangan] - Its has better taste than the topless girl walking around Philly...lol... I would be happier seeing the statue in my neighborhood.
[Audrey Chippendale Kelly] - No harm from it! No worse than real people walking around with their pants halfway down their butts, boobs hanging out! Worry about more important things! Murder, robbery, rapes!! The poor!!
[Michael Piepes] - I see women walking down the street showing more than this thing, and they have limbs
[Tracy Hollish Penland] - This news story shouldn't be ok to display...
[Kathleen Miller] - The nudity isn't the problem. The human body is a work of art. I personally don't like it because it looks sinister due to the limbs, or lack of. Then again art should inspire emotion, feeling so I guess this piece of art, is indeed, doing what art is intended to do.
[Jennifer Paige Parsley-Koenigseder] - It's a beautiful piece of art. People need to come down off their crosses we are running out of wood.
[Cynthia Headen] - Understandable it's art, where is the male statue? Always exploiting women for perverts. Let's have equal rights.
[Lisa Ann Campbell] - This is ridiculous!!! We can't display a cross or a nativity but we can display a naked woman??? I don't want my kids seeing this! We wonder why we have young girls thinking it's ok to run around town with their shorts so short their butts hang out and shirts so skimpy it leaves little to the imagination and they are all having sex at much younger ages now..... why??? because of stuff like this! No it is not OK to display this in town... it belongs in a museum or art gallery but not in town! I don't care if it is considered art.... it belongs in a gallery not in the middle town on display!
[Joe Haggerty] - Slow news day ? That's a good thing!
[Angela Reynolds] - Its art, kids see worse than this on their phone and the internet ... maybe we should just wrap our kids in bubble wrap ?? LOL
[Dan Taylor] - I thought yous were supposed to report news. Not ask of people are okay with a piece if art. Its art who cares it its in your town
[Cynthia Wynne] - It's art! Anyone who has an issue with it needs to get a grip. Nothing wrong with it at all
[Mary L. Tagle] - Well in Europe nude statues are everywhere!
[Richard Smith] - Build more statues!!!!!! I like it!
[Erik Benscoter] - It's art. Look at the Statue of David same thing. If this offends you then you got some issues.
[Samantha Redmer West] - People have been creating nude sculptures for centuries. Why is this any different? Ever heard of "David"? "The Kiss"? "Venus de Milo"? I could go on and on. This is art in it's most simplistic form. The human body. Get over yourselves people. The only thing I don't like about this sculpture is the lack of limbs.
[Caitlin Stonis] - Its not offensive but it is ugly... ..
[Liza Rodriguez] - Their is nothing wrong with it.
[Pasquale de Marco] - It is Art! ban this but it is ok to look at young men's underware on the street?? What have we become?A mixed up society,
[Duane Fletcher] - If you like brass boobs, visit the Pentagon.
[Cheryl Varnadoe] - This looks like something found on the Titanic. I'm not offended that it's nude, I'm offended that it's truly ugly. Art is supposed to bring a certain level of eye candy. This one is an eye sore.
[Shanna Minnick] - Its art! Come on guys! Since when do we make such a fuss out of a piece of art?
[Jackie McKnight] - It's ugly..no I wouldn't want it..art or not..just because it's "art" doesn't make it nice.
[Kathleen Funk] - I like it. In the name of art absolutely. Its a fine piece of work. Whats the problem?
[Kim Clark] - I don't like it has nothing to do with being nude if it was a full body arms leg I think it be beautiful but to me its unfinished
[Jimmy Foley] - Where are her arms and legs?
FOX 29: Nude No-No? Take a look at this statue! Would you want this piece of art in the middle of yo - 100th Comments
[Todd McCarron] - yes its art...put down your porn...only country in world that spend millions on sex and is so freaking UPTIGHT its ART...
[Richard Smith] - In philly with have a statue of a guy with his "stuff" out. Dont bother me, I use it to my advantage. I tell the women at work to look at the statute and that's me times 3. (I actually scored one time cause of that) THANKS STATUE! !!!!!!!!
[Tony Iannuzzi] - It's art. This country is sooo uptight about nipples but scenes of extreme violence are the norm.
[Michael Adams] - On thompson st th
[Michelle Furniss] - I see nothing wrong with this piece of art! And I'm laughing at the comment that eluded to the fact that due to art like this kids are having sex at a younger age. Seriously???
[Diane Bresett] - Art Who cares :)
[Michael Adams] - On thompson st near venango they have nude statues what the big deal.
[Tommy Valerio] - There's a HUGE difference between porn and art. This DOSEN"T even come close to porn. IT'S ARRRRRRRTTT !!!!!!!!
[Amy Delia Smith] - Only people with sick minds would find this offensive in the sick world we live in.
[Shayna Feinstein Fevola] - How are new artists supposed to get known if their work isn't shown in public places. It is an honor to have your work out there. Get real people, and just enjoy! It is a shame that we as a society need to get bent out of shape over the human body. There are so many more important issues to worry about.
[Kathleen Funk] - Lisa Ann Campbell lighten up! Attitudes and points of views like yours make children think the human body is for sex and not a natural thing. Tell them EVERYONE has genitalia so theyre not too shocked at 15 when they might find that out. Get real!!
[Russ Cauley] - I more worried about the creepy eyes
