A new art exhibit in Prospect Heights claims to have exactly what Brooklynites are looking for: sex and candy.
Six store fronts on Classon Avenue, have been converted into a galleries for a new art show called "Food Lust Shock Candy." In the windows, colorful pictures of cupcakes, candy, and women are displayed.
"It's about sexuality. It's fun. It's lively. Its meant to be provocative," said Naomi Huth, the curator of the controversial new show.
People walking by had mixed reaction.
"It's controversial. It will cause conversation because people will stop and think about it," said Carole Perez, from Brooklyn Heights.
One picture in particular called Gumball Bath, displaying a woman in a bathtub, with gumballs covering her privates.
" I think its a little risque. There is a daycare across the street and three schools," complained Linda Ponciano, from Prospect Heights.
"I'm just trying to bring art to the neighborhood,' said Huth, who runs an arts group called "Where am I?", that turns empty commercial spaces into temporary gallaries. The show is located at 845 Classon Ave. and will run until January 3rd.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
