LINCOLN, Neb. — Public art can spur myriad reactions.
In Nebraska, a woman complained to city officials that a 6-foot-tall red-and-black painted sculpture of outstretched hands is demonic, anti-Christian and a hate-crime against the church, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported.
The majority of the proceeds will benefit the group and the remaining third will go to the artist.
So until the auction, "Spiderman" will remain on display at the Lincoln Public Zoo.
"The sculpture is most definitely not a devil-related sculpture," Matt Schulte, director of Campus Life, told the Journal-Star. "It clearly has a very playful child-like intent."
