            Subject: inquiry on art and riots

    I've been lurking so long that I have forgotten how to send inquiries, so
    please forgive me if this was not the right place. My son, a journalist,
    asked for help on this one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. He

    I'm looking for any instances where art caused a riot--as with the
    premieres of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Cyrano de Bergerac or the Disco
    Sucks riot in Chicago. I'm looking for incidents that involve actual
    fisticuffs or destruction of property, not just critical condemnation. Please
    send replies to C@areporter.com.
