The door to the Little Gallery at BGSU Firelands is locked after the dean at the college removed a piece of the artwork, claiming it was "child pornography."

In question is the sculpture depicting a girl performing oral sex upon a man. It's titled "The Middle School Science Teacher Makes a Decision He'll Live to Regret," created by visiting artist James Parlin.

The director of the gallery labeled the action to remove the sculpture "censorship" and said it's "absurd" to call the artwork child pornography.
