Story Title:
NY1 At 20: 1999 Report Follows "Sensation" Exhibit Controversy

Story Summary:
In 1999, an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art called Sensation was causing quite a stir in the city. At the heart of the debate was a depiction of the Virgin Mary painted with elephant dung - a painting that so infuriated Mayor Giuliani that he cut funding to the museum - and even threatened to evict it. As we take a look back at 20 years of NY1, the station revisits Gigi Stone's report from October 2, 1999 when Sensation opened to massive crowds of both art lovers and protesters.
