Rembrandt. Picasso. Fish in a Blender?

For the past few years, PETA has been working with the College Art Association (CAA)—a national art organization whose membership includes more than 2,000 departments of art and art history in colleges, universities, and other institutions and more than 12,000 art professionals—pushing for the implementation of clear policies regarding the use of animals in art. In an important victory for animals, the CAA Board of Directors approved the publication of a statement of principles regarding animals in art that will help guide the practices of artists and curators. The principles state, in part, "No work of art should, in the course of its creation, cause physical or psychological pain, suffering, or distress to an animal."
