The All Power to All People Statue

"…And isn't that what art should be about, is driving that conversation? And I loved reading an interview with him where he talked about the statues have to have more meaning these days. They're going to be held to a higher standard and putting that much more thought into our statues and monuments, I think is what needs to happen. So I'm curious what the reaction here on Swell is. Do you like this piece? Do you hate it?…"

I would go a step further to say if something hasn't been taught in school, then it's probably very important to learn it because people have forced you to not learn it for a particular reason.
