DC2Standing Rock, “Deport Trump”

A newly formed artists’ collective, dc2standingrock, uses the large letter style of mid-Century postcards to draw attention to the terrors of the Trump administration. Constructed in DC’s McPherson Square park, the site of the OccupyDC protest in 2011, the work was entirely initiated and completed on inauguration day. The wavy lettering, typical of vintage postcards, draws attentions to the countless problems of the Trump administration, from ties with Russia, to environmental degradation, to defunding Planned Parenthood. Measuring over 40 feet in length, the artists hope that it will remain as long as possible. After a painting in response to the Dakota Access Pipeline, this is only the second work of these talented and creative artists.
