Oakland museum cancels Palestinian kids' war art

The Museum of Children’s Art was scheduled to display the art from Sept. 24 to Nov. 13. The exhibit had been in the works for several months, with an opening reception to feature poetry and special art activities for children.

The drawings in the exhibit were created by children ranging in age from about 9 to 11 and included bombs dropping, tanks and people getting shot.

"They are pictures of what these children experienced. It’s their experience," said Barbara Lubin, executive director of the Middle East Children’s Alliance, which was organizing the exhibition.
