Fungus Robert E Lee

Bronx Community College, Bronx, NY, 2019

part of: Reclaiming the Hall: Diversity in Public Art

1:1 scale replica of Robert E Lee bust removed from the Bronx Hall of Fame 

after the events in Charlottesville in 2017 and the reevaluation of Confederate 

monuments. Cast in mycelium. The growth, transformation, expansion of the 

fungus is a metaphor for the growth and spread of the “Lost Cause” myth of the Civil War.
