Corcoran alumnus, Benjamin Tolman, protests the University's aquisition of the Corcoran Art Musuem on Monday evening by hanging a sign with the word 'Fuck' on the museum's entrance. "So I know I can't have any effect, but I guess for me it's a little more of a memorial if not a protest," Tolman said of the sign. Currently a part-time teacher at the University of the District of Columbia, he is fearful that the aqusition will lead to the permanent closure of the museum. Tolman said his time spent studying Fine Arts at the Corcoran School of Art + Design was fantastic, informative, and made him confident in his ability as an artist.
