The International Human Rights Art Festival made quite a splash when the evening of performance was BANNED by His Eminence Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan from performing in the original space -- St. Mary's the Grand Catholic Church in NY's Lower East Side -- and was moved at the last minute to St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Brooklyn Heights.  Here is some of the press coverage!
