MILFORD - Empty spaces are all that remains after three paintings depicting nude women were taken down at Parson's Government Center in Milford.

One of the paintings was part of an exhibition of works by Milford resident Roger Van Damme that went up last month.

After a complaint, the painting was removed along with two others that had been hanging for decades.

The paintings are currently being stored in an office. City officials say they plan to put them back on display at a more appropriate venue sometime in the future.
