Installation at the Bishopville Opera House
Alejandro Garcia of Columbia was told Wednesday to remove his exhibition "An Alien at the Opera" from the Bishopville Opera House.
"They told me I had to come and take it down today," Garcia said.
A call to the opera house was not immediately returned.
The exhibition included an installation like work of boxes with mirrors and statements about immigrants and paintings of nude male and female figures.
"No one complained about the female nudes," he said. "I think it was too political or something."
The opera house invited him to show and he showed the staff and board images of what would be in the show before it was installed, he said. The exhibition went up about two weeks ago and was scheduled to run two more.
