Artists Install Snowden Tribute in NYC Park
The infamous NSA leaker popped up in the Big Apple and got carted off by authorities. On Monday, under cover of darkness, guerrilla artists installed a big bronze-colored bust of Edward Snowden atop an obscure Brooklyn monument to Revolutionary War POWs. But the Parks Department and NYPD removed it by midday, saying it was illegal. They’ve taken the sculpture into custody, and anyone claiming it risks facing charges, but the artists hope it’ll be granted asylum in a museum.
