Miami Childrens Museum is canceling its “Pornography” display due to the city’s new “porn law.”
The museum was scheduled to debut its “Million Dollar Collection” exhibit at the end of January.
The museum’s website says it was the “largest public art project” in Miami, with more than $200 million in artwork and sculptures.
The art museum announced it would close the exhibit because of the new law.
The law allows anyone 21 and older to purchase and view adult-oriented material that has sexual overtones.
The “Pillow Fight” exhibit is not affected by the new rules.
The exhibit, which opened on Dec. 4, has attracted controversy for featuring an exhibition featuring naked women and a video of a naked woman having sex with a dog.
The show drew criticism from human rights groups, which argued the exhibit did not represent the values of Miami and its citizens.
The Miami Herald reported that the exhibit was funded through the proceeds of the museum’s “Rise and Shine” fundraising campaign.
“We have made a mistake,” museum CEO Steve Johnson told the Miami Herald.
“Our artists are artists.
We do not endorse any sexual acts, we do not condone anything like that.”
The Miami Children and Families Museum will be closing its “Hipster Collection” exhibition on Jan. 31.
The exhibition was to open at noon, but will instead remain open until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 22.
Johnson did not specify how the museum plans to reopen the exhibit, but did say the exhibit will be open to the public.
The Children’s museum’s display on “Porno Collection” will remain open through Jan. 30, though.
The artist and his daughter will be able to work on their “Pilot Project” for up to two weeks, according to the museum.
The group plans to work with the museum to re-create the artwork and to “make sure the art is as accurate and up to date as possible.”
A statement from the Miami Children Museum reads: “We are working to find a solution to our problems.
The Museum has received a letter from the Department of Cultural Affairs informing us that it will not be displaying the Porno Collection exhibition, as this is prohibited by state law.
We are committed to working with the Miami City Council and the City of Miami to find an appropriate solution that is in the best interest of the Museum and its patrons.”
