Once again, the Trump International Hotel has become a canvas for presidential protest art.
On Thursday, Robin Bell of Bell Visuals projected the message: “The president of the United States is a known racist and a nazi sympathizer. This is not a drill. We are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy. #Resist,” according to The Washington Post.
That same night, Bell also projected images on the Newseum in honor of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was killed at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The projection read, “Heather Heyer. 1985-2017.”
Scissors and a dotted line at the base of the Albert Pike Confederate statue near D.C.’s Judiciary Square was also projected alongside the words, “Remove racism above line.”
The last time Bell projected messages on the hotel was in May 2017 with messages that included the entire text of the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution, “Pay Trump bribes here,” and “Experts agree: Trump is a pig.”
Bell is also known for having projected poop emojis onto the side of a Subway restaurant in Washington, D.C.
