CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — The naked Donald Trump statue is now free from the Cleveland Heights police department, just under a month from when police seized it from Coventry Village as lost property.
Artist Joshua “Ginger” Monroe, a Garfield Heights native who created the statues for a national art installation by INDECLINE, flew in from Las Vegas to collect his work. The statue will be auctioned off to benefit public art in Coventry Village and throughout Cleveland Heights.
Monroe, with help from a small group of community members including representatives from Heights Arts and the Coventry Village Special Improvement District, went to CHPD on Friday, paid his impound fee and collected the statue from the department. No auction details have been finalized.
