WASHINGTON (AP).- The Smithsonian Institution
's governing board is supporting the head of the museum complex over a censorship protest by some groups but is calling for changes in how some exhibits are handled.
Some art groups and others oppose the Smithsonian Secretary's removal of a video from an exhibit after a Catholic group and members of Congress complained.
A review by the Smithsonian Board of Regents released Monday found that changes should not be made to future exhibits once they are opened unless there is an error.
A panel convened to review the handling of the "Hide/Seek" exhibit included Harvard University professor David Gergen, National Gallery of Art Director Earl A. Powell and John McCarter of Chicago's Field Museum.
