For those who thought Donald Trump would only be president when pigs fly, some Chicago architects have devised the perfect form of protest.
Windy City-based New World Design plans to float four giant balloons in the shape of golden pigs to block the 20-foot Trump sign outside the president’s hotel along the Chicago River in a one-day protest of the new administration, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Architect Jeffrey Roberts is seeking city clearances for the project, which would involve floating the bus-size balloons on a barge parked on the river in front of the hotel’s south facade. The firm hopes to stage the stunt sometime in late summer.
“It’s a commentary on the ridiculous nature of how politics have gotten in D.C.,” Roberts told the Tribune.
