Art supporters protest after Smithsonian removes exhibit

About 100 people gather outside the Transformer Gallery in Northwest Washington to protest the removal of a controversial video installation by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. The video piece, 'A Fire in My Belly,' was removed after pressure by the Catholic League and members of Congress. (Ben de la Cruz/Edited by Jason Aldag/The Washington Post)
