Art criticizing Trump projected onto IRS building following Manafort indictment

Paul Manafort was also featured in the 15-second video

Robin Bell strikes again. This Monday, Bell, a Washington, D.C.-based projection artist, teamed up with the organizers of the April 2017 Tax March to loop a 15-second video on the IRS building.

The video featured money falling from the sky with images of President Donald Trump and Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager who was indicted on federal charges. Messages featured along with the video included “follow the money” and “release Trump’s tax returns.”

Starting at around 7:30 p.m., the video looped for approximately 40 minutes with no police or security officers requesting a cease and desist.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Bell said, “We hadn’t done the IRS yet, and with all this Manafort stuff, the clearest way we are going to find out stuff is through these records. It all made sense. It was cool to do this projection last night and tie it together with the news.”

Bell’s Trump-themed projections have been previously seen at the Trump International Hotel in May 2017 as well as the Newseum and the Albert Pike Confederate statue near D.C.’s Judiciary Square in August 2017.
