This art project was banned 3 times by the Alberta Government officials. Art was said to be inappropriate on the Alberta Legislature grounds by Sgt.-at-Arms Brian Hodgson, the Director of the Legislative Assembly Office's Visitor, Ceremonial and Security Services division. From February 2016 to October 2017 I picketed and defended my right to freely express myself against the Alberta Government until the issue was resolved. All the while I continued to paint and show my art ignoring the bans.
