I find it disgusting and disgraceful that the Kiwanis Club of Ponchatoula is being allowed to profit from a work of art that was deemed “racist” and not good enough to promote the Strawberry Festival.

The artist is making NOTHING from these sales, yet the Kiwanis have no problem in prostituting out his work for the greater good of the community. If it isn’t good enough to represent their festival, then it shouldn’t be turning a profit for them. I will not be attending or spending any of my dollars at this event.

To the artist: Don’t cave to pressure. Your work is beautiful.
