Christopher Stout Gallery, New York presents, THE LEGACY STONE (aka the Donald Trump Tombstone) a sculpture solo by Brian Andrew Whiteley.

A recent article by New York Magazine media property Bedford + Bowery does an admirable job of encapsulating the story and the journey of the Donald Trump Tombstone…

“Remember the Trump Tombstone? Also known as “Legacy Stone,” it was a 400+ pound granite tombstone created by artist Brian Andrew Whiteley initially placed in Central Park, bearing the name of one Donald J. Trump. It had no death date but rather the message “Made America Hate Again.” It briefly mystified the public, but was ultimately unmasked as being made upon request at a South Slope memorial shop, and was confiscated by the NYPD.

In July, Whiteley was able to retrieve it, and now gallerist Christopher Stout will be displaying it at a pop-up location via East Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Fire Proof. The original stone will be present, alongside a photograph of it in the Park taken by Ventiko as well as a grave rubbing of the stone, created in collaboration with “master printer” James Stroud.”

Brian is represented in New York by CSG/NY and has previously shown work in 3 previous projects with the gallery, including a project room gallery presentation last December. This is his first solo with CSG/NY.
