Anti-Trump activists vandalize ‘racist’ art at Evergreen State College
The Evergreen State College campus in Olympia is in turmoil over the election of President Donald Trump and they’ve taken to vandalizing “racist” art as a means to express themselves. Only, the art isn’t racist: they were simply pictures of Trump. In fact, they were critical of him.
Adjunct faculty member Steve Davis is the campus’ Coordinator of Photography. He put together an exhibition of work from Mark Peterson, a photographer who spent the last couple years on the campaign trail. His photographs have appeared in TIME, Rolling Stone and on MSNBC, according to Davis.
“His work is brash, funny, and presented our presidential election process as nothing short of a circus,” Davis explained to me. “I invited Mark to show last spring, as I thought it was the perfect exhibition to coincide with last year’s election.”
Specifically, the work was chosen by Davis because he “believed it gave a different perspective, from a front row seat, of how candidates, mass crowds, and the mass media intertwined to create what seemed to me to be a rather horrid spectacle.”
