The city of Chicago installed a 5 foot tall statue in front of Trump Tower Monday that spells out “REAL FAKE” in gold paint.

The statue is located at the intersection of Wabash Avenue and Wacker Drive, just across the river from Trump Tower. Chicago’s Trump Tower has been a spot where protestors gather and express their feelings towards President Donald Trump.

“What’s wonderful about art is that it is completely open to interpretation,” city spokeswoman Christine Carrino told The Chicago Tribune.

The sculpture was installed by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. Chicago artist Scott Reeder and the Kavi Gupta Gallery loaned the sculpture to Chicago in honor of the city’s “Year of Public Art”.

The Daily Caller News Foundation did not receive comment back from the city of Chicago regarding the sculpture in time for publication.
