A group of anti-fracking activists with the Food & Water Watch have launched an art installation that's sure to get the Democratic Party's attention. Their message: Fracking is crappy.
On Tuesday, the group unveiled their artistry, a modification to the Donkeys Around Town series found around the city ahead of this month's Democratic National Convention. Artists Tamara Clements and Becca Epstein spray painted the message "No ban on fracking? The Dem platform is crap" and placed poop sculptures underneath the fiberglass donkey in the City Hall courtyard.
Eighteen other donkeys, mostly along Broad Street, were decorated with the droppings, made of papier-mâché.
