Michigan - Roseville artist Edward Stross, was sentenced to 30 days in jail, 2 years probation, and a $500 fine for painting a mural of Michelangelo's "Creation of Man," which includes a bare breasted Eve, on the outside of his studio. Thanks to support from the Michigan Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, his sentence may be stayed pending an appeal. For now a portion of the mural deemed offensive has been covered.
