OWU Art Show Features Men With Fetuses in Their Mouths

Share This Post

A new art show at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio is turning heads with its provocative display of male figures with fetuses in their mouths.

The show, titled “2nd Trimester,” is the brainchild of Ohio Wesleyan fine arts major Connor DiBortio and aims to spark conversations about abortion and reproductive rights.

“I wanted to create a show that would make people think about the issue of abortion in a different way,” DiBortio said of his inspiration for the show. “Too often, the debate around this issue is framed as a woman’s issue. But it’s important to remember that men are involved in this decision-making process too.”

The artwork in the show, which was created by DiBortio and some of his OWU classmates, has been praised and denounced.

“It’s a powerful display that really makes you think,” said one visitor to the show. “It’s not something I would have expected to see in Delaware, but I’m glad it’s here.”

“I think it’s disgusting and offensive,” said another. “I can’t believe they would allow something like this to be displayed in public.”

Regardless of the mixed reactions, it’s clear that DiBortio’s show has gotten people talking. And that, he says, is exactly what he hoped to achieve.

“I want people to question their assumptions and preconceptions about this issue,” DiBortio said. “I want them to see abortion from a different perspective.”

The show will be on display at Ohio Wesleyan University’s Ross Art Museum through November 9.
