BESHT Show Turns the Museum of Art into a Free Speech Zone by Laura Tiffany

The project room at the Pomona College Museum of Art has come alive during the latter half of this semester with the voices of students, professors, artists and more during the installation of The Bureau of Experimental Speech and Holy Theses (BESHT), an experiment in public address and free speech.

Since November 1, the room has been open during museum hours to anyone with something to say. Organized by artist Adam Overton, BESHT has featured readings, the Diction-for-Dollars Open Mic events which offer $1 per minute of oratory bravery at the BESHT podium, class projects, poetry, soliloquies, wordplay, a guided meditation marathon, many collaborations with local artists, and more.
