Outrage over Columbus Circle Plans

The IIA is outraged at the installation of a new "work of art" that surrounds the statue of Columbus in New York City with a trendy faux living room setting. We've expressed our views through several media outlets, including the Washington Post, New York Post, the Associated Press, CNN and others.

In addition, on Columbus Day, 2012, IIA President Rosario Iaconis and others distributed special brochures about Columbus and the original monument to those visiting the exhibit. Our institute offered this educational information to the sponsors of the exhibit last month but were turned down. We were told the exhibit was about the Japanese artist, not Columbus.
