A Catholic college in Kansas has reacted to mounting criticism of its decision to host an art exhibition called “Rainbow in Reverse: Queer Kansas History.”

Newman University, located in Wichita, announced earlier this week they were canceling the exhibit, citing “community concerns” over the content, according to the Wichita Eagle.

In a statement, Newman Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Kimberly McDowall Long said that the university “understands that diverse perspectives, in an atmosphere in which the human dignity of each person is respected, are key to learning,” but still opted to cancel the show.

The exhibit was to showcase the lives of LGBTQ Kansans through sculptures, photography and installation art. The exhibit, curated by artist Genevieve Waller, is now planned for a small gallery in Wichita.

Newman University is a Catholic college sponsored by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ religious order. It has a LGBTQ student club.
