Strange statue in snow - level 2
There is a new piece of artwork at a college in Massachusetts. It is a very realistic statue of a man who is wearing only his underwear. Its name is “Sleepwalker” and it’s outside in the snow.
Some people like it. Others don’t mind it or they think it’s funny, but one student started an online petition to remove it. The statue has been called inappropriate and uncomfortable. It is a part of a new exhibition.
There is a lot of discussion as the man in the snow. Some cars which were driving by started to slow down suddenly, as the drivers wanted to have a better look at the strange statue.
Difficult words: petition (written request signed by a lot of people), inappropriate (unsuitable or rude), exhibition (show of paintings or statues that people can go to see).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
