Bodies exhibitor posts disappointing 1Q

From Forbes.com: Premier Exhibitions dives after 1Q disappoints

The company attributed the loss to a reduced number of revenue-producing days because many of its exhibitions were traveling, negative publicity for the companies Bodies exhibit from ABC’s 20/20 news show, and an increase in administrative costs as it tries to produce more of its own exhibits.

It’s nice to hear that the growing awareness over the controversy of the Bodies the Exhibition that’s currently being shown at the Cincinnati Museum Center is actually having some negative impact on the company’s profits.

The Cincinnati Museum Center is claiming record attendance for the show, but it is clear this show is drawing at a slower rate than previous record shows.  I detailed this in an earlier blog entry: Bodies the Exhibition in Cincinnati not doing as well as expected

    Is there a significant physical protest (people outside the museum either picketing or attempting to engage with those going in to see the ‘exhibit’)? If so, has there been any disturbances resulting in arrests or anything along those those lines?

    There was some picketing early on in Cincinnati, though peaceful. I have not heard of any pickets in the U.S. that have led to arrests.
