Detainee art? What detainee art? Popular stop vanishes from prison media visit

Paintings and other artwork by suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay’s detention center are no longer part of the tour reporters see when visiting Guantanamo, reports Carol Rosenberg for the Miami Herald.

A recent furor over a display of detainees’ artwork in NYC’s John Jay College has led to a new policy that forbids the release of such pieces. Defense attorneys organized the exhibit and sale of the art.

Prisoners still take art classes while at Guantanamo.

Other galleries have expressed interest in the works.
