Gay rights group wins battle over controversial New Rochelle art exhibitPosted: Updated:
A New Rochelle restaurant has agreed to put back up a controversial photo exhibit after a gay rights group planned to protest Wednesday.
The Cosi restaurant chain displayed pictures of gay couples prompting e-mails to the corporate office. The e-mails claimed the photos were not appropriate for a family restaurant. Empire State Pride Agenda, an advocacy group that organized the month long exhibit, talked with representatives from the corporate office and the company agreed to put the photo display back up.
A spokesman for the company says the exhibit was taken down because the photos were not aesthetically arranged for an ?art-house look.?
