Hello Philanthropists Shelley & Donald Rubin - of Rubin Museum of Art Fame! (An open letter for public view.)

Hello Mrs. and Mr. Rubin! It has come to my attention that in October you were featured and photographed in the New York Times at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, Queens. However, nowhere in that photograph do we see the presence of the Socrates' so-called artwork "Bear Eats Man" - a sculpture that shows a bear engaging in bestiality with a male human figure. For your information, it is off to the left in your photo. Did you know that it was there? If so, were you embarassed to be seen with it? Do you approve of its appearance on NYC parkland?

In any event, the New York Times article mentions that your foundation has donated $300,000 to the Socrates Sculpture Park. Mrs. and Mr. Rubin, will these monies be spent on future installations depicting such pornographic activity? For your information, this issue of the "sculpture's" appropriateness in a public venue has recently been explored on two postings of the widely-read and highly-influential Queens Crap blog site which you can read here and here.

Mrs. and Mr. Rubin, your comments on this controversial matter would be welcomed by myself and the readers. The favor of your reply would be appreciated.

Sincerely Yours,
