To the Brooklyn Museum of Art:

 

The "Sensation" exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art is a repugnant and despicable display of bad taste and anti-Catholic bigotry, surely earning the museum a black mark on its reputation as well as the contempt of civilized people around the nation and beyond. Those responsible for mounting this exhibit have done great harm to the prestige of the institution and invited the present storm of public contempt.

 

With hearty disapproval,

 

John F. Robin
