USNPS cites turf damage, aesthetics in last-minute denial of permit for giant nude statue on Mall

The National Park Service has blocked activists from installing a giant sculpture of a nude woman on the National Mall in Washington.


In a letter on Wednesday to the group seeking to install the statue, the park service’s acting regional director, Rick Obernesser, said that the agency had chosen to deny requests to put the 45-foot-tall sculpture, titled “R-Evolution,” “on the turf or hardscape near the Washington Monument.”
