Protesters Greet Ganesha, Art Dedication

Protesters stood on opposite corners of 6th & Sherman Friday evening, demonstrating for and against a public arts display depicting the Hindu god Ganesha in downtown Coeur d'Alene. This is one of a half dozen protesters from the Kootenai County Constitution Party, including two children, who opposed the sculpture of Ganesha, which is one of 14 pieces displayed around downtown Coeur d'Alene as part of the art-on-loan program. The demonstration was peaceful, with demonstrators simply holding signs and answering questions from local and Spokane reporters.
