Mpls Landmark Gets Marked By ‘Kony’ Graffiti
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The sculpture that signifies Minneapolis now bears the name of an African warlord whose reputation has recently gone viral.
The Walker Art Center’s “Spoonbridge and Cherry” sculpture, created by Claes Oldenburg, bore the word Kony as of Sunday evening.
The graffiti is an apparent reference Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
Kony became infamous after the group Invisible Children made a documentary about the warlord and his numerous alleged crimes.
