CHICAGO — “REAL FAKE” are the golden words that currently sit at the intersection of Wabash Avenue and Wacker drive, right across the river from Trump Tower.

The “Real Fake” sculpture is one of five pieces of art selected to be put along the Chicago Riverwalk, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The installation is part of the city’s Year of Public Art.

Scott Reeder created his piece in 2013, so it is unlikely that it had any intention of mocking President Trump, however, it’s placement in front of Trump Tower seems suspicious.

Any insult is entirely in the beholder’s eye, ┬ácity spokeswoman Christine Carrino stated. “What’s wonderful about art is that it is completely open to interpretation.”
