Artist projects words 'pay Trump bribes here' onto DC hotel

17 May 2017

Bell estimated that it was the fifth time he had successfully projected images on Trump's DC hotel, located just a few blocks from the White House. It all started at the end of November, when he and several other folks projected the message "Experts Agree: Trump is a Pig" on to the front of the building (a reference to the late 1980s campaign by the activist group Positive Force declaring the same of Reagan's attorney general, Edwin Meese). "This is not like politics as usual".

Bell's projection got a mostly favorable response from the public. It's a clause that many allege Trump is violating by the lack of documented evidence that he's resigned from his family brand and his baffling comments made earlier this year that "the president can't have a conflict of interest". "The rules and the lines are being pushed so far and this seemed to be so clear to me".

"It was about 10 minutes before the security came", Robin Bell, the social justice artist behind the projections, told BuzzFeed News.

So for me more than anything else, it was great to see him out here especially during practice walking around, talking to guys". Brown isn't sure whether Kerr will be at Oracle on Sunday to watch the series opener against the Spurs .

"That is one of the big things that I'm trying to do - using our artwork to explain these stories that are tricky" said Bell, an artist and filmmaker based in the District. "He said so much that they could figure it out".

Besides the "Trump bribe" and "emoluments welcome" projection, Bell also projected the words of the emolument clause, which reads, "No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States; and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of Congress, accept any present, emolument, office, or title, or any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state".

Meanwhile, the hotel has routinely become a place of protest, with scenes and signs and shouts of "shame" taking place just as often outside 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. They argue that accepting payments from foreign governments, who rent hotel rooms and meeting spaces, amounts to a violation of the Constitution.

He also traveled to Harrisburg, Pa., in April to project protest messages against the president as he delivered a speech marking his 100th day in office. "We're going to keep going".

Bell says he enjoys doing these guerrilla projects since they can transform a random government building into a wild conversation piece.
