The Kudzu Project installed...then removed!
Early in the morning on November 9th, the day of self-described white nationalist Christopher Cantwell’s preliminary hearing at Albemarle County Courthouse, The Kudzu Project was installed on the statue of a Confederate soldier in front of the courthouse. Photos of the completed installation, taken just before dawn, show the statue draped with knitted kudzu and a sign explaining the project. After the installation, someone removed the kudzu leaving a lone strand hanging from the statue’s rifle. The Kudzu Project team members recovered the knitted kudzu and plan to save it for a future installation.
