Milligans second attempt unfolded similarly. Caffe Scozia, a coffee shop on East Burnside street in Portland, requested he not hang his psychedelic Jesus on the grounds that several nuns from a nearby abbey were regular customers.
Optic Nerve, a tattoo parlor and gallery on Alberta Street, commissioned a show of Milligan's works. They wanted something edgy, something that would give observers pause. When Milligan brought in "Sweet Jesus...," it was rejected as being too tame and not controversial enough.
