Artist Tom Otterness is famous for his sculptures and public art works. But he's also famous for having killed a dog on film as part of an art project. Now, after 34 years -- and many apologies -- Otterness has received a commission for public art projects for San Francisco's Central Subway and General Hospital. Animal rights activists are up in arms, and many are demanding his contract for the art be canceled.

The Arts Commission votes on the contract at its Wednesday meeting.

Guests:

P.J. Johnston, president of the San Francisco Arts Commission

Sally Stephens, chairperson of the Commission of Animal Control and Welfare
