Yale says art student's project is a fake

As I predicted, the abortion art project was a hoax and the media reaction WAS the real art project.

"Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art," a Yale spokeswoman, Helaine Klasky, said. "She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body."

I'm sure many news stories are out on this by now. Here's Yale's statement on this.

Truly the "... just typing" of performance art, if that.

As a critic, I give it three thumbs down and both buttocks.

So how 'bout you do the same excellent investigative job on the art installation where the artist supposedly starved the street dog?

Snopes seems to think it might be true...?
