Student’s artwork portraying cop as pig gets pulled from art fair amid complaints it 'promotes hatred and divisiveness'

A high school student’s mixed media artwork depicting a police officer as a pig was pulled from public viewing just days before its would-be debut at a Cincinnati art fair on May 5 after some community members complained.

The piece — which features a drawing of a pig dressed as a police officer in the foreground and a collage of newspaper clippings related to police brutality in the background — was on display at the Madeira Municipal Building. There, a local named Kellie Gantzer Williams spotted the portrait, which was done by an unidentified Madeira High School student, and reported it to Madeira Schools superintendent Kenji Matsudo.

On Tuesday, she posted an image of the work on Facebook.
