FALSE. It was just a piece of student art the college didn’t really want and the student had to pay $1000 dollars to keep it there. The college has the check ready to send back to the kid if they ever take it down - but it doesn’t seem like they will be anytime soon.
Or at least, that’s the story I was told and I’m sticking to it.
