Artist Robin Bell has been capturing the nation’s attention with art projects in which he projects light images in prominent places throughout the nation’s capital. His most recent light projection features Jeff Sessions wearing a KKK hood.
The light projection was also framed by text, which included “#SessionsMustGo” and “FireSessions,” along with a summary, more or less, of a line Sessions himself said in the 1980s: “I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot.”
The whole thing was projected onto the Department of Justice Building, with other light projections including the image of a black man behind bars along with the words, “1/3 of black males can’t vote because of the war on drugs.”

Bell has also caught attention for other light projections, such as “Pay Trump bribes here,” a phrase that he projected over the Trump International Hotel in New York.
According to Bell, he chooses his locations specifically to draw attention and to make sure that they are in places that are sure to be seen by Trump and his team.
“Maybe in the history books, it’ll show that we were not for this,” Bell told the Huffington Post in an interview.
