Smithsonian Says NO To Trump Portrait – Smithsonian Has 4 OLD Trump Portraits “Apple Tossing Trump” PHOTO From 1989 Will Do For Inauguration Of Trump

Mr. James Smithson founded the Smithsonian Institute for the ‘Increase and diffusion of Knowledge’. As unprecedented global historic events have unfolded recently with the election of Donald J. Trump, one would think that a correlating historical pictorial expression would take place at our Nations most prestigious National Art Museum, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

We are delighted to inform you that it will take place just as imagined! The Trump Art Show is ON!

BREAKING NEWS: In a classic David and Goliath battle, the Smithsonian Institute has issued a series of seemingly pointless and empty statements in their present objections to showing The Trump portrait and painting by artist Julian Raven, ‘Unafraid And Unashamed’.  Dr. Richard Kurin, Smithsonian Provost and Under Secretary for Museums & Research, appeals to ‘recent tradition’ as validation for his rejection of the Trump Portrait.  See letter here: http://www.unafraid-and-unashamed.com/smithsonian-responds-by-dr.-kurin.html

A supposed ‘Long Planned’ event, secret until the now, rejected Trump Portrait application was submitted on December 1st, 2016, forced the Smithsonian to show its hand on December 9th, 2016 by releasing a ‘press release’ about this wonderful and formerly secret event.  With full red, white and blue patriotic fervor, the Smithsonian Institute plans to show the ‘Apple Tossing Trump’ photo by Michael O’Brien, at the National Portrait Gallery for the historic commemoration of the unprecedented Trump election win and inauguration.

Questioned by Michelle Ross of WETM18 News about the refusal to even accept the application and show the Pro-Trump campaign portrait and painting, the spokeswoman for the Smithsonian issued another stunning statement.

“There is a process we go through when we acquire a work of art and it has to be decided by the museum’s curators and director, so it’s a process, and we really don’t need to go through such a process since we already have our own.” Linda St. Thomas

There you have it folks, no ‘process’ is ever necessary, in fact throw it to the wind, when you already have in your archives the necessary outdated artwork to commemorate such a current historic event.  We were surprised that the Smithsonian did not insist on using a photo of Donald Trump as a baby for such an auspicious occasion!

Back on January the 17th, 2009, the Smithsonian showed the political campaign Obama ‘Hope’ poster to commemorate the historic election of then President Elect Obama.  But now, rejecting the ‘too political’ campaign portrait and painting as ‘unnecessary’ since the Smithsonian has the 1989 photo of Donald Trump ‘Tossing an apple with his right hand!” Yes you heard it right here people, Trump actually tossing an apple into the air with his right hand.  The relevance to Trump’s ‘meteoric’ political campaign must be hidden in the symbolism of the flying apple! Such profundities never cease to amaze us at the Smithsonian!

With this staggering news about this formerly secret ‘long planned’ artistic and pictorial event to be held at the National Portrait Gallery, we can already see the lines of tourists, Trump supporters and media lining up to get a glimpse of the now passé, antiquated yet resuscitated ‘Apple tossing meteoric Trump!’
