BROOKLYN - A new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum is stirring up a controversy with religious undertones.
A film that depicts ants crawling on a crucifix is part of a new exhibit called "Hide/Seek." The director, Arnold Lehman, says the film is part of the museum's goal of depicting American art in the 20th Century, and is not meant to offend.
But others, such as Kieran Harrington of the Diocese of Brooklyn, says the museum is acting irresponsibly.
"Something tells me that we are not going to see anytime soon the Brooklyn Museum holding similar exhibits of Prophet Mohammed or Star of David or any other religious symbol," she says.
