LancasterOnline.com: Ind. Business Told to Hide Nude Statues: "EDINBURGH, Ind. (AP) - The Venus di Milo had better wear a top and Michelangelo's David should put on some pants if they're going to be seen at a yard art business.

Bartholomew County officials told the business near Interstate 65 that it must move cement copies of the classical statues — and about 10 others — out of public view because they are obscene under Indiana law.

'It's not fair to point out our business, and personally, I don't find them offensive,' Ginger Streeval, a co-owner of White River Truck Repair and Yard Art, told the Daily Journal of Franklin for a story Wednesday.

Frank Butler, the county's zoning inspector, disagreed.

'They have nudity ... and that should not be in the view of a minor,' he said.

Indiana's obscenity law prohibits the display of nudity where children might see it, he said.

The law also stipulates that such material is harmful for minors if, 'considered as a whole, it lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value for minors.'"
