Trump will unveil a new Tcc canvas next week, a week after unveiling a TCC painting of him that he claimed showed the former president “grabbing” his genitals during a private meeting at Trump Tower in New York City.
The painting, entitled “The Art of Tcc,” will feature Trump on his desk in the Oval Office and will be accompanied by a plaque that will say the painting is part of a campaign to show the importance of the arts to Americans, The Hill reported Wednesday.
“He’s been using his art to show people how important art is and that art is an asset,” TCC executive director Mark DeSantis told The Hill.
“He wants people to see that he believes in it, he believes it’s a very important asset.”
The painting will be the centerpiece of a week-long exhibition called “The People’s Art,” which will be presented by the TCC in Washington, D.C., from Feb. 26 to March 2.
DeSantsons group is one of many organizations dedicated to making public art accessible to the public.
A statement from the museum’s website says that TCC’s “work is dedicated to bringing people together to celebrate the art and culture of the United States, while also raising awareness of the urgent need to support arts education and outreach efforts in order to provide opportunities for all Americans to enrich their lives.”
“In this context, the art on display in The People’s House is an important step forward in the fight to raise public awareness of our nation’s rich and diverse art heritage and to help us connect to the people who make this country what it is,” the statement reads.
The president-elect has also unveiled several TCC works in recent weeks, including a portrait of him in his office and a painting of the “Great American Dream.”
