The Milwaukee Art Museum on Thursday unveiled one of its most controversial exhibits. It’s called "Eggs Benedict" and it’s the portrait an artist made of Pope Benedict XVI, out of 17,000 high end condoms.
The goal of the portrait is to spur conversation about stopping the spread of HIV and AIDS. The former pope suggested that condoms were not the answer.
"Eggs Benedict" wasn’t supposed to go on exhibit until November, but Milwaukee Art Museum Director Daniel Keegan says there was so much interest, it pushed up the date.
