Nude statue gets a toga

A beautiful statue of a nude young female is in the Hyatt in Kansas City, Mo.
She graces the central area of a large eating establishment.
We have seen her many times, but on our recent visit(6-06) she was covered in this "toga".
We were told that 2-3 times a year she must be clothed to satisfy certain groups staying at the hotel.
An interesting type of censorship of the arts.
Of course, this is a private hotel and not a museum and they can do what they please with their art.
One native of K.C. commented to me "this isn't Kansas City", but I could not help but believe it was Kansas City. Posted by Picasa

Maybe its not a matter of censorship. Maybe they are just using the Hyatt as a temporary Delta House, since their old building was torn down.

Now that is an idea that didn't cross my ANIMAL HOUSE mind, but since the group was called Abstinence Works I think they would be leaving almost everything shown in the movie---OFF--except togas.
