Hitler Mini-Golf Sculpture is Raising Eyebrows in Art Gallery – Daily Dose of Weird [PICTURE & VIDEO]

An art gallery is definitely a place where limitless creativity is put on display.  But what happens when creativity applies to a touchy, possibly offensive subject?  A put-put obstacle shaped like Adolf Hitler, that’s what!

The Grundy Art Gallery in the UK is currently hosting an exhibit called “Doug Fishbone and Friends: Adventureland Golf.”  One of the installations, created by artists Jake and Dinos Chapman, is a giant likeness of Adolf Hitler that raises and lowers its hand in the Nazi salute, and shouts “Nein Nein Nein” whenever a mini-golf ball passes through it.  Needless to say, organizations like the Board of Deputies of British Jews are a little offended.

The gallery supports the Chapman brother’s work, stating to the BBC that the use of the Nazi leader’s image in the context of recreational fun makes “reference to the British wartime spirit of making humour at the Fuhrer’s expense.”

Personally, I feel like an art gallery should be one place where all forms of artistic expression are welcomed equally, as long as they don’t cause physical harm.  What do you think?  Tell me in the comments below.
