Description of Artwork: Male nude in bronze

The Incident: Instead of relying on the jury procedure used to determine which art was to be shown at the gallery, one of the members of the Stockton Art League (of which Vincent Mazo was also a member) told the artist that the sculpture was of exceptional quality, but because it was a male nude, versus a female nude, conservative members of the organization did not want to show it.

Results of Incident: The sculpture was not shown at Stockton Art League exhibition
