Wall Street 'Charging Bull' sculptor calls for 'Fearless Girl' to be removed
Wall Street 'Charging Bull' sculptor calls for 'Fearless Girl' to be removed

She was also enough of a hit with New Yorkers and tourists that city officials granted a permit that will keep her there until at least February 2018. At a press conference this morning, Di Modica and his lawyers said they hope to amicably solve their issues with the city before filing a lawsuit. Yesterday, in response to Di Modica's call for the work's relocation, de Blasio tweeted: "Men who don't like women taking up space are exactly why we need the Fearless Girl".
On the eve of International Women's Day, Kristen Visbal's sculpture was placed on a traffic island near Wall Street to make a point, which is that there's a shortage of women on the boards of the largest US corporations.
Interestingly, the bull itself was also placed on Wall Street in 1987 in the middle of the night without a permit, after that year's stock market crash.
Help us find justice, say backpacker's family
She left the village late at night and was found the next day naked in a nearby field, with injuries to her head and face. A childhood friend of Ms McLaughlin has already released a music single to raise money to support the justice campaign.
Authorities initially removed the unauthorized work but later reinstalled it following public clamor for it to remain in the financial district. Mayor Bill de Blasio extended its permit for nearly one year as a response to widespread requests to make it a permanent fixture. He proposes that the city move "Fearless Girl" to another location, and reimburse him for infringement damages. An inscription at the base reads, "Know the power of women in leadership". Artist Arturo Di Modica, however, is apparently not a fan.
The statue was originally placed as a publicity ploy in honor of International Women's Day on behalf of McCann and State Street Global Advisers. Over 36,000 people have signed an online petition calling on de Blasio to make the statue a permanent feature on Wall Street.
The Washington Post reported that Di Modica "doled out sharp criticism" of the statue and said it was not art but a "publicity stunt".
It's a battle of two sculptures, and two ideals: "Charging Bull", a 7,100-pound symbol of brash financial optimism, and "Fearless Girl", a four-foot emblem of female empowerment. Where others see an inspiring note for women and girls, Arturo Di Modica sees "an advertising trick" that is violating his legal rights. "None of us here are in any way not proponents of gender equality", they said before demanded the statue of the little girl be moved elsewhere.
Now, though, Di Modica apparently thinks that his once-rogue art has more rights than a new piece which was actually given a permit by the mayor himself.
