Around 5 p.m. today, artist Pablo Machioli's sculpture, which he placed in front of the Lee-Jackson Monument last night with about 10 others, was removed, according to activist Owen Silverman Andrews.

"BPD made it clear they care about protecting art dedicated to white supremacist slave owning war criminals rather than art inspired by Black resistance to oppression," Silverman Andrews wrote via email. "Art represents society, so BPD's removal also says a lot about who they serve and protect and who they don't."
