Ohio University campus moves art display after objections

Student photographs depicting suicide, nude bodies and a burning Ku Klux Klan robe were moved from a public hallway at an Ohio University regional campus after people complained. Dan Evans, dean of the Ironton campus, says the photos were moved to a conference room to protect them from vandalism and to ensure people have a choice in viewing them.

Hundreds of pictures were hung in the hallway of a campus building also used by high school classes and the public. Someone taped an unsigned letter on the wall objecting to the content. Others called the dean's office
