I think that if it had nothing to do with money, i wouldn't care. Some of his work is nice in my opinion like the one shown below. But if the institution had spent a large amount of its funds obtaining the piece being debated, i wouldn't be thrilled. However, i would say that if it were any expensive non-interactive work. A campus can be beautiful without art work, but i think that the addition is always nice. I wouldn't have even thought to protest against it.
