Some viewers object to art appreciation course

Updated:
(Claremore-AP) -- Some viewers have found little to appreciate in a Rogers State University art appreciation telecourse.

Performance art being aired this week on R-S-U-T-V promotes an array of messages including cannibalism and an attack on Catholicism.

That's according to Margie Alfonso, a Tulsa resident who has complained to the Claremore university about the program called Temple of Concessions.

Alfonso and other callers have objected to things like a Madonna with an exposed potbelly dragging a cross into a religious ceremony being led by a priest with two Devil's horns.

Other segments show a male of Latino descent using a red, white and blue bandanna as a tourniquet as he simulates injecting drugs.

University spokesman Brent Ortolani says the three-hour course has been offered to students over R-S-U television each year since 1996.

Ortolani says the school gets a few complaints each time it airs.
