Piss Trump by James Kelsey
Lucky Lab Beer Hall on Quimby Street

THIS IS AN ANTI-TRUMP ART CELEBRATION

James Kelsey and his team have been working for 6 months on his current Large Format photography project, PISS TRUMP. We don't see a way to post a picture of the final image so here is the description:

  • A Fat, Naked Trump
  • Crucified on a cross
  • His Hair and long red tie floating upward.
  • They are floating upward because the entire sculpture is immersed in a tank of urine.
  • Beautiful 'god light' surrounds trump in a gloriously offensive final photo!

THIS IS NOT A PROTEST. . .

This is a celebration! This is a chance to LAUGH and not be angry for a change. This is a chance to make fun of our ridiculous PEETUS!

Pee-Colored clothing (yellow / orange) is encouraged! PUN pee-signs and signs poking fun at trump in general are the goal.
