11. Positive Visualization: Art to Make America Great!!!!

Dumpy is more into fabric swatches more than fine art, but this installation should be his future.





An Anarchist Art Collective Transformed a Trump Tower Hotel Suite Into a Prison Cell for the President

The guerrilla art project turned a luxury suite into a 24-hour art pop-up, with a Trump lookalike jailed inside a prison cell with live rats.

Is Donald Trump a prisoner of his own gilded cage? One anarchist art collective seems to think so.

Operating with the utmost secrecy, the anonymous group INDECLINE infiltrated Trump International Hotel and Tower last week and turned a $1,000-a-night suite into a radical art installation titled “The People’s Prison,” locking a Donald Trump impersonator in a cage full of live rats. The room was transformed into a jail with bleak cement walls featuring the work of 13 artists, each of whom painted a portrait of an American activist or revolutionary on an American flag.

“ We were inspired by the Russia investigation. The walls are kind of closing in for Trump,” an INDECLINE member told artnet News of the project, the culmination of six month’s planning. “We wanted to imprison him within his castle.”

“Throughout American history, there’s been a very vibrant political resistance culture,” he added, pointing to the portraits of Hunter S. Thompson, Betty Friedan, Muhammad Ali, Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, and others. “Trump is the antithesis of what actually makes America great. So we wanted to surround him with these people. This is the America that we’re proud of, this is part of our history that we are inspired by, these are the people we look to as an example in these turbulent times.”

An ignorant, depraved con man deserves the best of the worst.



Traitors, more so.
